Well, if you want to have a half-implemented feature, where you only have part of the 4-tuple, that's your perrogative.  For completeness, I would have included all of the connection information: it is, after all, a network application.

But you can be ground-breaking and have the first network application that doesn't expose the 4-tuple. :-)
