Actually the target audience is more private households, mobile devices
and such. No company there really has any business telling the
individual users that they can't receive connections, except perhaps
that they want to charge extra for it.
For households, filtering should really be done at the household
router. For mobile devices, it HAS to be done at the device - you can't
rely on a friendly environment.
