So the point is to add a second interface to disable/enable services, 
besides editing /etc/rc.conf, that keeps state in single files (as already 
provided by the rc.subr framework) and that prevents users from knowing 
directory/path data?

The question coming to my mind would be "what's wrong with putting 
ipfilter=yes into /etc/rc.conf" - what is it?
