Actually, I've been considering locking both lockd, mountd and statd to given
ports (see bugs #231074 and #289958, for instance) by default, but there are
two things that must be considered first:

 1. What ports? Is there anything remotely standardized? Can I just grab a
    few ports that look unused?
 2. The nfs-utils maintainer's opinion about the whole issue; I've been
    working a bit on the package, but he still has the final word :-)

BTW, this would probably have been more appropriate as a bug (possibly
wishlist) against nfs-utils.
