That's not even close to being right. The port does not decide what is running on it. A port is just a number used to organize incoming packets. I could set SSH to run on port 80, and DNS to run on 8080. Moreover, port 8080 is more generally used for a proxy than anything. And tell me, how is HTTP useless? Without web pages, half the missions here would not be possible.
And it's not "pretty much open on all machines" because I know for a fact that ~93% of the market share for desktop computers is running some form of Windows, and most of those (XP, Vista, 7, etc.) do not run HTTP by default.
