No.  You can certainly connect to devices on an OPT interface bridged to
the WAN.

I have a SIP server on OPT1, bridged to WAN.  That way my internal
clients and my SIP peers can communicate with my SIP server without any
form of NAT being involved.

I have had this set up for a couple of months without any problems.

Just bridge OPT1 with the WAN, and start using your valid external IP
addresses on OPT1 (remembering that your default gateway will be
m0n0wall's _WAN_ IP address !!!) and don't forget to set 'Enable
filtering bridge' and add the appropriate rules as needed.  You'll also
need to set 'Enable advanced outbound NAT' so that your LAN clients
don't get NAT'd on their way to OPT1.
