DMZ's are dangerous for security.

I just open the ports I need in my firewall. All the reasons stated in the OP's hint for opening a DMZ don't make sense at all.

Bittorrent. If you use Azureus you only need to open 1 tcp port, and 1 udp port for decentralised tracking.

Serving Web pages you only need to open tcp port 80

Remote Logging via SSH you need to open tcp port 22 and if using public key authentication it is very secure.
