[tor-talk] Isolating Proxy and iptables.

I'm setting up a Tor-based isolating proxy using the 'Anonymizing Middlebox' iptables rules specified here: https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TransparentProxy
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i $INT_IF -p udp --dport 53 -j REDIRECT --to-ports 53iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i $INT_IF -p tcp --syn -j REDIRECT --to-ports 9040
...and the INPUT, OUTPUT and FORWARD chains are left at the default. Would there be any merit to also including the following rules?
iptables -P INPUT DROPiptables -P FORWARD DROPiptables -P OUTPUT DROP
iptables -A INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPTiptables -A INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
iptables -A OUTPUT -o lo -j ACCEPTiptables -A OUTPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
Or are they rendered unnecessary by my current setup?
Are there any other firewall rules that I should consider in order to improve security and ensure that all traffic is torified?
Many thanks.
