 Personally, I'd rather see it assume 388 and fall back to
 portmapper/rpcbind in the event of 388 failure, but that's just me :)

Actually, Steve E wrote to me off-list and indicated that this is exactly how it works. Change in the code at some point??

Probably not a huge concern to allow localhost portmapper connections is it? For upstream hosts, if you specify the portnumber in the request, does it still contact portmapper?
