Apologies for being imprecise.  The Cavium chips appeared in the older
generations, e.g. EdgeRouter Lite.  I find patchset from November 2015
adding support for the ERX, although not yet for hardware accelerated NAT.

Caveat about attempt to multiplex incoming POE power to all 5 ports is that
you can only get so much current from single strand of cat-5.  UBNT likely
designs for 1 to 1.5A current capacity on each outgoing POE port, and you
wouldn't be able to source 5A+ on the single incoming port reliably.

That is, an Edgerouter sourcing current to multiple POE destinations would
have to receive its power via some means besides POE.
