Hemmm ... if you close the port 3306, so where do you put the mysqld to LISTEN on ?
Well, if you considering the security ... you should implement a "good" mysql privileges.
For example, if you running mysql and only be accessed locally / localhost client. You
should never had a grant access for a user which came from hosts beside "localhost".
So even you just telnet port 3306 from other computer, the connection will be refused :D
Let's call it an accidental feature.
