I can see a few scenarios where this would happen (scripts, sync  
jobs, etc.)  but overall why would you ever need to?  You can easily  
exclude IPs from the iptables behavior, and/or setup a backdoor SSH  
daemon on a different port.  And generally if you're the only person  
using the system then keeping SSH on port 22 isn't really a concern.
