Don't worry though, the cool kids are too busy figuring out why their cluster is out of consensus to pay attention to much else. Supporting different ports on different servers would be a much appreciated feature (I can't remember if it was Kafka or Cassandra that didn't do this and it was very annoying.) Remember, as the connection string gets more complicated, psql supports the Postgres URL format as a single command-line argument and we may want to begin encouraging people to use that syntax instead.
