: SSH doesn't reimplement TCP, thus allowing it to be run over a datagram
: protocol...uh, does it?

The IANA has been allocating port numbers in both protocols for a
single service for some time now.  I don't know their rationale, but it
certainly makes it less confusing when talking about port numbers.   It
also leaves room for services to change their mind (e.g., NFS) or use
both protocols (e.g., DNS) without having to notify IANA.
