I think that it may be beneficial to specify that a DOH server MAY work on a
port other than 443 and that the DOH client MUST support accessing DOH servers
on ports other than 443.

I have been thinking about the possibility of adding support for DOH to a home
router. In the future, someone may modify dnsmasq so that it would act as a DOH
server - dnsmasq could then run on this router and provide DOH services.
The port 443 would be already used by the router's management interface which
would probably run as a separate process on this router (as it would be an
entirely different codebase). So dnsmasq would have to provide DOH services on
another port.
