To a large extent, systems behind such a firewall are *not* on the
Internet. They are on a private network which happens to use some,
but not all, Internet protocols. NAT gateways have a similar effect,
so your firewall isn't unique in that regard.
To phrase a new question: Is MARID intended to solve problems in
private networks, or on the Internet?
My guess as to the answer is that as the IETF is the *Internet*
group, it defines *Internet* protocols, and doesn't deal with private
networks. So systems which aren't on the Internet, and systems which
don't implement Internet protocols, are explicitly outside of the
scope of MARID.
