No, certainly not automatically. But would like to be able to.

e.g., want to be able to put a node in a "DMZ", allowing even e.g.
things tunneled on top of IPv6.

If UPnP needs t be aware about transport ports, then anything not TCP or
UDP (you might also say SCTP and such, but I think they are not
supported, anyway) would be ruled out.
