Fair points, but this article was commissioned by me as a short way to show people how to change the port number. The directions in BOL have not been clear to many people.
The "why" article probably should be written, but this wasn't an attempt to cover every aspect of this topic.
If the article had said something like "As the directions in BOL are unclear to many people, here is how to go about changing a port number" then that would also have been fine...
(I'm not bashing the article, it was simply a little "here's some information", that's all.)
