It's not to avoid remapping addresses, but to try and
use the firewall as an application firewall instead of
a packet filter firewall.  The running application on
the firewall would be in charge of receiving whatever
type of information on the external interface and then
redirecting it to the internal interface, instead of
simple NAT'n and IP forwarding, which is at the
network level.
