This argument makes no sense.  A snoopy ISP could as easily collect this 
information from non-NAT routers as from NAT boxes.

In Australia, I would have thought that privacy laws would make selling 
that kind of information illegal.  In the US they use noxious services 
like phorm to collect and sell info, no NAT needed.
