From https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/ietf-http-wg/2015OctDec/0539.html:

-- Section 9.1 --
The third paragraph assumes that system ports are inherently more secure
than user ports, and, as discussion during the development of RFC 6335
raised, that hasn't been the case for some time. Many systems no longer
make a distinction, and no longet require root authority to listen on
system ports.
