I think you're misunderstanding (or else I am.) It seems they want to
redirect connections to the web interface that would go to port 80
(cleartext) to port 443 (https). A 403 style redirect. Not just have it
listen on a different port.

It is a sound idea, that way you can enforce admin access over SSL.
