Actually, there are several reasons to do so:

The ability of firehol to test a configuration and, if it broke
everything, recover automatically is the best reason I know for doing
all the firewall stuff inside it.

The other, and more pertinent, reason is that firehol will flush the
existing firewall completely, removing these settings you manually

Er, unless firehol is unaware of the particular table, which could
probably be construed as a bug with firehol.

Patriotism is only a virtue if the person who has it
lives in your country.
