Its often hard to tell who exactly owns which service, and many local
services have agents that then go and query remote hosts. It is doable for
protocols, the AX.25 protocol does it so you can have both radio amateur's and
non licensed users on the same machine. It does not do it for IP however as
its far more complex.
