On common workstation there is no need for firewall. Firewall
is advanced tool, if user is not able to configure it, then (s)he
probably doesn't need it. And if there is no firewall (or other
hand-crafted protective measures), then there is no need for
rp_filter. So on common workstation there is no need for
rp_filter too.
