Because you start services, that may listen to the net, on boot?  Actually,
I agree with you in principle - it shouldn't actually start from the boot
scripts. A firewall should be restarted whenever a network connection is
made, which means you'd want a script in /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/ (if
possible) or .../if-up.d/, but it should certainly start before you log in
to X.
