I think it's valid.  It seems intutive to do:
$ ssh -oGatewayPorts=yes -R 1234:foo.example.com:1234 server
and expect it to be a wildcard listen (server permitting, of course).

Using the client's GatewayPorts as the default for requests sent to the server
too seems sane.  It can always be overridden per-forward with something like -R
*:1234:foo.example.com:1234 or -R localhost:1234:foo.example.com:1234.
