I'm not sure that's true anymore. Specifically, I know that Linux's
NAT implementation, which accounts for several of the common DSL
routers, doesn't timeout a silent connection until a matter of days.
It might be interesting to talk to the NAT implementors, and see what
timeouts they're actually using these days.
