Tcpwrappers should be enough for access control. Rate limiting as

might be nice, but definitely not a requirement.

I'm pretty satisfied with what's in FreeBSD, basically. One thing is
essential for administration -- the possibility to use xinetd-like
/etc/inet.d/ directory (for easy disabling/enabling and adding/removing of
services by package managers).
