[tor-relays] Are zealous connections to directory port common?

Not sure I should disclose them in a public forum, but somewhat 
obfuscated they are:

5.0.137.xx - Syria - 455 connections
66.150.6.xx - Groundspeak, Inc - 108 connections
72.78.110.xx - Verizon - 202 connections
68.101.234.xx - Cox Communications - 51 connections

It seems there were attempts before I even published the directory port 
(it is default anyway), but I was not identifying the actual connections 
before, only the count. Why would any IP address need more than one (or 
several simultaneous) connection is beyond me.
