Sure, some people are going to have different needs, but I think
that disabling incoming connections unless explicitly enabled would
be a proactive step for the distribution.
If there is one arch which wouldn't allow this then fair enough
disable it for that one, I don't think that is a sufficiently good
argument for disabling it for all though.
