I was sloppy and did not include all the details here. The spec goes 
into a lot more detail about what and how needs to be supported in the 
first iteration[1]. I still think that moving the port creation to the 
conductor is not a hard dependency of the first iteration of this 
feature. I also feel that we agreed on this on the PTG.
