Sorry, possibly a bit of missing info here: the canonicalisation
currently forces the use of the server's own name for itself,
and the *default* port for the scheme (e.g., 80 for http:, 443
for https:, ...).  If the server is listening only on port 8080,
the canonicalisation process will result in a useless and incorrect
