            Bug ID: 24832
           Summary: Remote end MUST listen on both local and remote
                    network interfaces?

It is unspecified whether the 'remote end' MUST/SHOULD/MAY/MUST NOT/... accept
commands from a remote 'local end'.

Note: I believe currently IEDriver does not accept commands from remote
clients. There is not even a command line switch to enable that.

'Remote end' is defined here:

It says "The implementation of the remote end may be on a machine remote from
the user of the local end." but that does not require anyone do anything and
doesn't even explicitly inform that 'remote end *may* be on the *same* machine
where the local end is' (which a formalist-ass like myself may want to see).
