This probably depends on Feature #100110: Possible Merge With Inetd Editor

Yes, doesn't make much sense if the module(s) will be rewritten...

Martin, please, add more suggestions how to restrict these services if you have some idea. Thanks.

Technically: man xinetd.conf:
bind Allows a service to be bound to a specific interface on the machine.
This means you can have a telnet server listening on a local, secured
interface, and not on the external interface. Or one port on one interface
can do something, while the same port on a different interface can do
something completely different. Syntax: bind = (ip address of interface).
