Why must X open TCP by default?

This is regarding 9-STABLE. All of the 9-STABLE boxes
that have Xorg installed, and running on them, insist on
opening TCP port 6000; as reported by sockstat(1)
Xorg 1295 1 tcp6 *:6000 *:*
Xorg 1295 3 tcp4 *:6000 *:*
I see that the (current(ish)) documentation indicates
that this option is off, by default, and can be enabled
by passing -listen_tcp to startx(1). This seems to hold
true, as all of my -CURRENT boxes do not show port 6000
as being open while X is running. So my question is;
how can I prevent X from opening tcp ports?
startx -nolisten tcp
but no joy. Is there an option available for xorg.conf(5)?
Option "DisableTCP" "true"
I couldn't find any hints in the man pages.
Anyway, any input greatly appreciated.
