I always thought the WHOLE POINT of UDP submission was the admission 
that it's fairly prone to spoofing, poorly/unauthenticated, 
unacknowledged without higher layer mechanisms, susceptible to packet 
loss, and inherently insecure, ALMOST EXACTLY like the RF medium we're 
getting the packets from.   :-p
