I think the answer is yes and yes. Anyway, such a thing should probably
be called "icmp" rather than "raw".

Now, you have /etc/init.d will a silly name (.off suffix suggests the
directory contains services that are off). :)

I dare to say *no* network services should be on by default. The amount
of boxes running an instance of every service included in the default
system installation (including those having well known vulnerabilities)
is already too high and there is no need to even make it even higher in
the name of luser friendliness.
