Will anybody care to explain why FreeBSD's PF will not work when kernel securelevel is enabled?

seems kinda ridiculous

What secure level are you using?

At lev 1:
no load/unload kern modules with kldload.
cant write to sys memory via /dev/mem or kmem devices
can not format devices
cant start Xwin.

At Lev2:
all of lev1 and the following
cannot write directly to either mounted or unmounted filesystems
can not alter system time by more than 1 sec at time.

At Lev3:
Prevents changes to IPFW or IPFilter rules.
