This maybe very important in order to be able to "separate" the
local-address from the IP address published / announced.
It maybe valuable, very valuable, if for a specific single node i would
be able to add-up even 100 IP:Port pair, then using "third party system"
to redirect inbound sockets to that 100 IP:Port to the main one.
I mean, an IP:Port can also not be listening on the specific node but
also represent a remote tcp-port-forwarder that is forwarding incoming
TCP socket to the node OR's port.
It would be very interesting if this kind of setup could be done.
