I think we should have a consistent policy for preferably all only
services, I would be fine with removing the restriction or extending
it to just 80/8080/443 or whatever; I do not think we should have more
special ports (but clearly need a better error message IIRC).

I gave myself an AI to do that and added the topic as an agenda
suggestion for our next meeting to the Wiki.
