Agreed.  For example if you have a firewall on the local host.
Usually connections from the local host to the local host are
allowed but inbound connections from other hosts are blocked.  In that
case nmap on the local host would report open ports that would show as
blocked when coming from a remote host.  You would need to probe your
host from another one in order to gain meaningful information about
remote networking attacks.
