Possibly dangerous and for what reason? If server_started fails for some
reason before binding a port you lose, painfully.
Nothing stops you from binding some obscure port to begin with and then
rebinding later, as described in the changelog.

Since you might be starting up on a normal checkpoint (in case of
lossage) it has to be done at startup.
