Windows XP SP2 and later has the concept of different "zones" (or whatever
it's called) where it'll allow things from the local subnet but not from
outside of it, if you tell it so. I know people who configure their
network printers without default gw to handle their spotty security.
I do think the home router should have a stateful firewall and according
to what I see in the IETF, this is going to be the recommendation for an
IPv6 enabled home gateway.
