I never agreed with it, but one
of their reasons to open this was passive FTP. Their reason was a lot of
the sites that were visited used Passive FTP, that randomly uses any port
above port 1024.
Why not just restrict the ip ranges to a few hundred (thousand) ports?
This is explained in the active vs passive ftp site,
