The No Open Ports Policy is a good one.  It would be better, I think, if it 
were made more specific to accommodate packages that know how to listen only 
on non-internet-facing devices, like CUPS.  Actually, this suggestion is 
pretty CUPS-specific - we could gain some nice functionality for which 
(AFAIK) we have no GUI solution for, without the kind of exposure involved in 
*really* opening a port.
