 I suspect its general security access to bind() on high numbered ports.
 For both ICP and HTCP.

 The server or group security policies will affect these.

 Side effects of disabling both will be an impact in external bandwidth
 and duplicated content in the sibling caches. If you used it for parent
 selection then this could also lead to mistakes in their up/down
 detection, resulting in more client visible error pages. Hopefully not a
 major problem, but annoying.
