The obfs4proxy README shows users how to set-up obfs4 running over port 443 which is probably the most desirable option: those users can evade network restrictions without enabling discovery by scanning.

I really dislike warnings unless we absolutely need to have
them, and this imo is in the category of "change the default,
update the docs", especially because just changing the port
is not a real solution in my book.
