Comment (by spacedmonkey):

 I spent another couple of hours hacking on this problem, still finding
 issues. The issue, as I see, it where to store the custom port. If you
 store it as part of a domain, then that makes issues all over core, when
 domain is no longer domain but domain + port. I had to make lots of
 changes to get multisite to even bootstrap. The best place to store port
 number is in site ( blog ) meta. This keep the port number close to the
 site in meta but does not break anything.

 I prototyped how this might work in
 this] sunrise.php dropin.

 What made it hard to test, was the lack of this filter.

 $allowed_ports = apply_filters( 'allowed_multisite_ports', array( ':80',
 ':443' ) );

 To help third parties be able to work out their own solution for this, I
 recommend a new ticket to add this filter. That way this functionality is
 not blocked while we work on another solution.
