I don't know where you find ideas like this.

There are stateful firewalls in the security packages in front of all the internet facing servers in all the major service providers I've worked at.  Not *just* stateful firewalls, but they're in there.

That one company is trying something different does not mean there isn't widespread standardized use of the technology.
