They don’t have to be straight outside. You can reverse proxy them (client
traffic is just HTTPS traffic after all) and/or put these site systems in the
DMZ – many folks do both.
As of CB, you could also host the site system in Azure IaaS (or another cloud
provider’s IaaS although that won’t strictly be a supported configuration).
This would also require a VPN or ExpressRoute to Azure (or the equivalent to
another provider if you go down that route).
Hopefully in 1610, you’ll be able to use a cloud proxy point in Azure which
won’t require IaaS at all – it’ll be just another role in ConfigMgr (somewhat
similar to the cloud DP).
DirectAccess is another choice here as well as it simply provides a path for
all external clients to get to your existing site systems.

I have never had an Internet facing MP/DP and I won't get one working here
because they just won't put anything straight outside. So what are my options
to get both MP/DP/App Catalog functions going just for PC's?
