I don't know whether that is a good fit for this discussion, but I think
technically the nicest way is to choose a port range and a port
convention, for example:

- AJP: NN09
- HTTP: NN80
- Shutdown: NN05

and let the user choose NN or NNN. In server.xml it could be
port="${portBase}80" etc. and in the startup options -DportBase=NN.
