A: It depends !
If the client is not providing any service used by another system
then I would expect there to be little problem. However, most clients
now do things like file sharing, zeroconf (aka Rendevous), register
with servers etc and so it does become important - though I assume
zeroconf must have a mechanism for dealing with this.
