OLD:

   Between the subnet and the ISP access link is a gateway, which may
   or may not perform NAT and firewall functions. A key point of this
   configuration is that the gateway is typically not "managed". In
   most cases, it is a simple "appliance", which incorporates some
   static policies. However, there are many cases in which the gateway
   is procured and configured by the ISP, and there are also some
   common cases in which we find two gateways back to back, one managed
   by the ISP and the other added by the owner of the unmanaged
   network.

    Note that there are also some cases in which we find two
    gateways back to back, one managed by the ISP and the other added by
    the owner of the unmanaged network. They are not covered in this memo
    because most of them either require some management, or the gateway
    added by the user can function as a L2 switch.
