Actually, that only covers the firewall running on the local machine.  Far,
*far* more problematic are external firewalls running on routers, typically in
a completely different sphere of control than the machine running AG.  These
tend to be run by people who respond to a request of "Could you please open up
these 5,000 ports to all addresses?" with derisive laughter.  Dealing with
these external firewalls becomes much easier when the AG is restricted to a
small, tightly defined set of ports.
