The term we use here is gateway.  And the different deployment options
alter where the discussion belongs.  Forwarding TCP is very different
from acting as a gateway.  Here we need only concern ourselves with
the latter.

I think that you may have missed my point though.  The important
distinction is first party vs. third.  A gateway is intrinsically a
first party in the conversation.

The discussion we're looking to have is: what is the role of third
parties in what is primarily a two party protocol?
