I can't speak for most of the world, but in the past where we've directly 
connected to MySQL over the internet that's always been limited by IP (which 
as you doubtless know is built-in to the permissions system).

The difference for me in this case is that instead of talking to a dedicated 
server, we're accessing a shared managed database service - hence these 
additional measures make sense.
