Hi Leaders,

The initial security requirement dictates that zone content disclosure
should be restricted in order to reduce the risk of hidden/internal
hosts disclosure (which we could even argue it's a "security by
obfuscation" practice).

Keeping it open might also mean we did our work correctly, applied
basic risk assessment, and stick to our "openness" principle.

(okay okay, devil's advocate now heading towards the exit door)
