Relays need to allow connections to all outgoing ports.

If you do lines like the above, your Tor relay will be unable to reach
other Tor relays that chose port 80 or port 110 for their ORPort or
their DirPort. (People choose those ports because some users are behind
firewalls that only allow connections to those ports.)
