Services automaticly change firewall rules to open access to themselfs.

Any thoughts on implementing automatically port opening for service that need to open port access in the firewall as in when service is started that needs port opening it would automatically read some firewall.conf file for that and open the port automatically according to those settings in the firewall.conf file ( add the iptables rules automatically when the service is started and remove those rules when the service is stopped )

Doing chkconfig service or service service start/stop and it would also open the port for that service in the firewall

Thoughts anyone.
