1. Debian does not have firewalling by default, so if firewalling is
necessary for security, then it is not secure by default.

2. Firewalling is not actually an asset in network security; the
notion that it is is misguided and thoroughgoingly erroneous.

3. Picking some random kernel feature and saying "this must be there
or it can't be Debian" is not appropriate.  That's just not how policy
