This thread should really be put to bed.  The only concrete action item 
that has emerged from it is a request for the inclusion of iptables, 
which is duly noted.  Iptables is one clearly useful tool for limiting 
access to a daemon based on source IP.  Since none of the devices ship 
with any daemons running by default, this is likely to be a low priority 
for Nokia engineers.  It is, nonetheless, worth noting that it would 
provide 3rd party developers and and power users with options for 
limiting access to user-installed daemons.

If this is important to someone, they should build a kernel package with 
the feature enabled.  If it generates interest, we'll be in a much 
better position to petition Nokia for the feature than by discussing it 
in a vacuum as is currently happening.
