packages using non-standard ports

syslog-nagios-bridge needs to listen on a TCP port for connections from
rsyslogd or whatever

To make it easy for users (fully automated installation), I can

a) configure the package to listen on some port (I use 30514)

b) deploy a file /etc/rsyslog.d/nagios-bridge.conf with the config for
the same port

Doing this, the service starts working as soon as the package is installed.

Do people feel it is a good idea for packages to grab non-standard ports
like this?
