Thank *you* for the "pedantic" ;-)

And to return the favour, here's why you don't really want to have
UPnP on your border device:

  https://www.reddit.com/r/sysadmin/comments/4gpiez/upnp_on_pfsense_security_risks_and_alternatives/

(the short: every random javascript your browser sucks in from
the Intratubes and a small slip in your browser's security can
instruct your border device to open arbitrary holes in the
firewall).

Enjoy
