Also, it's probably wise to point out that NAT-punching (and/or SOCKS-punching outbound) reduces cost of HS adoption for organisations that don't want to rejig their network architecture to permit "yet another listener"; it's an attractive proposition to say "it only connects outbound and rendezvouses (sic?) in the middle of the tor cloud" #ohThatsOkayThenNoFirewallChanges
