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.

Why?  It's a fairly common notation.

putting the source port # next to the source address, and putting the 
destination port # next to the destination address, makes sense.   putting the 
source port number next to the destination address doesn't make as much sense 
to me.
