If anything, this is a bug in the man page. What the page really should
imply is that the 65536 rule at the end applies to ALL packets, not just
IP ones. If you set default to accept, then all non-IP will be
accepted. If you don't, then all non-IP will be rejected.

This can be done at run-time on a per-Ethernet-protocol-number basis. See
the top of src/etc/rc.firewall.
