Well _there's_ a surprise.

Uh, yes, that's the whole _point_ of /etc/services, so you can
dynamically get a port number rather than hardcoding it.  Of course,
the port number for things like ftp/http/smtp and the other popular
protocols are very unlikely to ever change, but that's not the point.
If you change port numbers in /etc/services, things will break.
