Guesswork on my part, but part of the answer might be that FTP/REXEC(RunRmtCmd) 
are common clients that are outside of IBM's control. IBM cannot provide an 
iSeries administrator with any tool to control the client side, therefore they 
created control on the server side.

iSeries Access is an IBM product and they have provided administrators with 
some ability to control what gets installed and/or enabled on the client side. 
If you don't want a user to use iSeries Access remote command/distributed 
program call for example, then don't allow it to run from the PC.

I realize this is not a wholly satisfactory answer because I don't know the 
answer. But in the absence of direct IBM response to your question, I guess 
this list will have to use some reasoning to work out the basic form of an 
answer -- if a pattern exists.
