Your fix sucks. The above, instead of merely ignoring a parameter, now
fails. That can hardly be called a fix; in fact, it once again changes
the semantics to suit your goal, instead of fixing code.

With the direction the code is taking, there is no chance of making work
streaming on different ports for the same protocol, which is the feature
that mattered the most. And you seem to remain blind and deaf to valid
use-cases that are pointed out, or to arguments about the feature freeze
being the wrong time to overhaul core subsystem features and semantics.
That's just great; what now?
