We have port 80 keyservers as well but they are not the default.  These
keyservers exists because of the firewall problems.  

What about round robin DNS names: We could put the port 443 keyservers
into - they are used by people with firewall
problems and thus we can be quite sure that those firewalls will also
allow port 443.  I think this is a less surprising way than to maintain
another list of with the hkps servers which can't
be bound to port 443.

I have no problems with the SRV record suggestion, either.
