Use of a well known port that you can block will actually make it EASIER
for you to make use of that "feature". Today if you leave your PC up
with various forms of commercial software, you have no idea who is
connecting to what.
The IETF has been doing extensive work on NAT traversal, have a look
and see if you can reuse some existing mechanism.
All mechanisms used with the possible exception of an additional SNMP
table will be re-used from existing IETF work (mostly SSH with help from
the fact that it's based on TCP).
