So if you use private ports, you'll be totally protected from the Internet nasties (and the Internet protected from your broken or malicious traffic) in the same way RFC1918 addressing does the exact same thing now at the network layer. I'm sure everyone will filter private ports just as effectively as RFC1918 and martian addresses are filtered at borders now. Can't wait to read the draft and RFC. Rock on. -- Crist J.
