eliminating bogus port 43 exits

I've read the entire thread and I still have one persisting question in
my mind...

Why are "bogus port exists" bad, and why should I eliminate them form my
exit policy?

*if* I want to keep the type of traffic somewhat also anonymous
(assuming the operator is not looking at the content) then I might use a
separate port to communicate my information.  I don't know if I totally
feel comfortable in this, most especially when we start talking about
peering into the content.  And even looking to see what the protocol
actually is, is peering.  That should be private, as an ethical
consideration for all operators.
