Because, as you explain later in your mail 'slirp [...] has to create a
listening socket [...] on every port.' which means that you won't be able to
start any application on the box which needs to listen to a port.
I agree that 'DoS' is maybe too big a word as 'listening' applications are
rare, but well, it would still be a pain in the ass to have all 65535
available ports taken by one application.
