And so are TCP packets with the reserved bitflags set .. that dosen't 
make them legitimate either. Sometimes FTP picks port 31337 too ..

Just because something is *technically legitimate* per the RFC dosen't 
mean there isn't a compelling reason to block it.

If the Internet would have remained an academic exercise (where the 
object was true universal connectivity) rather than a commercial one 
(where the object currently appears to be "how to selectively break 
things in order to profit") -- things would be a lot different.
