Apologies for resurrecting this thread but that feature has been added. See Ubuntu bug 54312.
You can force vino to bind to the loopback adapter with the "Remote Desktop" GUI or this incantation:
gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/remote_access/local_only --type bool true
You can confirm the setting took effect with:
lsof | grep vino-serv | grep TCP # forgive my ignorance of lsof's options
