Yes, NAT + rule is great. But nat + rule works only with Initial Address within LAN.
My task includes situations when Initial Address does not belong to the LAN,
actually Initial Address is somethere in the Internet.

Here is an example of redirection scheme:
The initial Address: Initial Port-> Connection Address: Connection Port

I think "Inbound NAT" is not suitable for such situation.
May be there are some other opportunities? 

I wish to get "rinet"-like feature from m0n0wall. (<http://www.boutell.com/rinetd/>)
I use m0n0wall Version 1.23 built on Sat Mar 10 14:21:36 CET 2007

all the best
