Google translates "vouched" to "verbĆ¼rgt"
suck something is not guarantee for it

beeing forced to accept something or get the firewall completly dropped 
in the product is the opposite of a open discussion

to be honest the way you agrue in this thread "it's the applications 
fault if it listens to a port and not ours that we make the OS wide 
open" don't let you appear as somebody who is open for a security 
discussion killed always with "but then some things don't work magically 
and we want that for user expierience" so you hardly would follow 
advices from security experts no matter what they say
