NACK to this. We need to figure out how to make this filtering
work with them set to 0. The change to set them to 0 by default
is explicitly done for the benefit of virtualization, otherwise
guest traffic gets blocked by regular host firewall rules which
is not desirable. eg run system-config-firewall and block ssh
port on the host, and you've blocked it on all the guests too :-(
