I'll second the notion that source port and destination port should be clearly 
distinguished.  Also, putting the source port # next to the destination IP 
address strikes me as confusing.

Subject: Logging port numbers

There is a registry for Additional-registered-clauses, which is
currently empty, but we could fix that.  Seems reasonable?

Works for me.  The only thing I can see that might come up is that not all 
SMTP servers listen on port 25, so maybe we need a way of (optionally) 
logging the port on which the SMTP server was listening as well?
