Yes it could. Will it happen? No.

i hate Windows firewall.
What is stopping you from getting a hardware firewall.....
or using another (free) software firewall.....
You are not forced to use the Windows Firewall.

And for requests for Avast, there is another thread on this board dealing with it.
It is called "whislist for the next release"

This was discussed a lot of times before...
Most users don't want exactly this because avast will become a bloatware-all-in-one-systemworks-like-application.
We want another, standalone, Alwil firewall  8)

Until there, you can use ZA, Sygate, Outpost, Kerio, Jetico, etc. All them have a freeware version of a firewall  :)
The best things in life are free.
