The value of a limited environment is in case the
tor daemon gets exploited. A full vm needed, tor's
not an OS, so perhaps not. A static tor in an equivalent
of lighter BSD jail, probably a fair balance. A dynamic tor
in full access OS [root] shell... as with any other service
best practice, hell no.

As to NAT, the fewer the better, especially not
consumer DSL/Cable "routers" that tank under load,
those should be bridged to a real BSD/Linux box
that can handle it.
