0x666 hex is 1638 decimal, and it's taken:

cnip            1638/tcp  CableNet Info Protocol
cnip            1638/udp  CableNet Info Protocol

Basically, this is just an experimental protocol that's being played
with here, and if it ever becomes real, then it will need an IANA
protocol number assignment before it's widely deployed.
