Laptops are regularly attacked at the Coffee Shop from BEHIND the NAT44
"firewall".  No firewall the IETF provides will solve that.

As your company IT guy why they gave you an insecure laptop for travel.
So seriously, go ask them.  NOT AN IETF PROBLEM.
Better yet, bring your company IT guy to IETF, so that they learn what's it
like to be connected to the actual Internet. As you say, most have never been online.

It's a great idea, and I sure wish it would occur.

To be effective, they hotel chains would need to solicit this document, and
pay a significant figure for the consulting.  Otherwise, they will ignore it.

capport WG has been struggling for attention of the same types.
