It has been said many times that the impact on users will be limited
as node is not meant to be called directly but by inetd. You and other
members of the ham radio community seem to feel that there would be an
impact on its users. Perhaps pointing to some specific use cases that
will be impacted would help the rest of us understand the issues your
user would face?

Apologies if you've covered this elsewhere (I've read this thread but
not all of the past ones).
