Why isn't it sensible to dedicate more than one TCP/IP port to http? Although admittedly naive, isn't it somehow intuitive to think that server performance could somehow be increased?

What's intiutive may vary... For me it's intutive that adding another port is equivalent to opening another intake on an already filled (water-)pipe, and therefore doesn't increase the performance - but of course this opinion is as naive as yours...

@"more than one port": Sure, you could do that; but if you use a firewall between your endpoints, you have to open the ports.
@"server performance": Depends on the usage of different application pools for your services.

Just my two cents :)
