Is it really advisable to customize /etc/rc.firewall as the handbook suggests for client and simple rule sets?
I think we would want to update this file via freebsd-update at times, in which case preserving local modifications would be a nightmare as there's no telling what people might stick in there.
Would it perhaps be better to add something like

Is this a bug report? :)
Maybe mailing lists would be better?
