Quite the opposite.  If nothing unusual is going on then only the
hostname will suffice (but including them is always permitted).  For
anything else -- TLS offloading, use of non-standard ports etc. --
schema and port virtualization are necessary and therefore required to
be included in the ServerName directive. The Shib SP has no other
source to construct correct self-referncing URLs.

E.g. if httpd listens on port 5000 then that port will need to be
included in SAML Metadata for protocol endpoints, too.
