[tor-relays] Ports 465 and 587 vanished from reduced exit policy?

It appears that some years ago someone quietly removed port 465 and 587
from the reduced exit policy at
without an explanation.

I've added them back in, since these ports should only be used for
user-authenticated SMTP, and not spam. Has anyone experienced any abuse
from these ports that involved non-authenticated mail/spam?

Otherwise, it seems that exit operators who were using the reduced exit
policy should consider updating their polices to include these ports.
