According to the IANA document, 991 is
already assigned:

nas             991/tcp    Netnews Administration System
nas             991/udp    Netnews Administration System
#                          Vera Heinau <>

The document lists 992-994 as being free, so maybe just move imaps
to 994.

BTW, I count 504 assigned Well Known TCP ports from 0-1023, 506 if you count
0 and 1023 which are both reserved.
