yes, thats surely a better way as to use a (maybe not) free harcoded port.
but then we should mention that point in the quick help of 
backend-provision, maybe like:

parser.add_option("--ol-mmr-urls", type="string", metavar="LDAPSERVER",

Port <> 389) ]  separated with whitespaces for Use with OpenLDAP-MMR")
