Correct me if I'm wrong but in case of IP_BIND_ADDRESS_NO_PORT doesn't the 
unique 4-tuple (sourceip+sourceport+destip+destport) limit still remain? 

As you only defer/delegate to kernel to assign the ephemeral port in connect() 
rather than at the bind() time (when the destination is not yet known) so in 
case of a single source ip and single backend/port the ~65k limit still exists.
