If you're intending to filter at some point, then who cares what the ports are?Is there an updated list of ports used by Napster and various games (Doom, Unreal, etc)? At this point we're just collecting data points and not actively filtering anything, but of course the IANA port number list is sadly out of date with regard to these tools.
Filter the ports that are using too much traffic on your network. If Napster/Doom/whatever isn't using too much bandwidth, blow it off.
There's a very big difference between filtering to correct a problem, and prior restraint.
