I am not sure to follow here. If you change the desired port through
<VirtualHost> the listening port is /not/ affected (see also upstream
docs [1]). That means, if you wanted to change that behavior you'd need
another Listen directive anyhow, regardless what you configured in your
default site where Apache shall listen.

Admittedly you don't need to use ports.conf for that, but you need to
add it somewhere. While you're at it, you could use ports.conf for that,
don't you?
