I'd be happy to answer. I don't recall whether it appeared in the original thread, but I'm unclear on whether a matching change for consistency is needed to getservbyname[_r] -- if decimal strings are not considered service records for the purpose of reverse mapping (as a result of the proposed change to getservbyport[_r]) then should they also not be records in the forward mapping?
