Hm, for me I don't host anything, but I do occasionally connect from the 
outside with ssh and/or vnc.  So even if my ip address isn't static, I 
need to be able to forward ports in.  I'm not sure even that'll work 
though with Comcast residential.  Maybe I could us a dynamic dns service 
perhaps.  But this is somewhat an issue unfortunately still.
