How does packet tracing deterministically work?

If a packet can take any route, how can you iteratively figure out the path from you to a host?

From what I can tell, packet tracing works on the basis that
packet_i takes a the route: route(packet_(i-1)) + router_i

Could IPv6 make NAT / port numbers redundant?

From what I can tell, each process could get its own IP address, with loads of IP's to spare.

What would the drawbacks be?

Essentially, your host would become a router and each process is a host (in the current system).
