Personally, I think this is more a case of the administrator just wanting
to open "standard" services... and ssh isn't considered "standard".  Most
of the places I've worked have just opened http, telnet and ftp to the 
outside world... and no employee wants to ask for ssh, because then they'd 
have to explain what they were using ssh for on company computers.  ;-)
