nmap-services is much richer I guess...
No, it's not ;-)

After I've stripped both files from header and footer comments:

nmap-services has 2286 lines (all of them entries)
port-numbers has 14992 lines (about half of them comments)

So the official IANA port-numbers files has roughly three times more entries than the nmap one. Ok, you could argue that the nmap one probably contains more entries seen "in the wild".

Well, the profinet entries I was looking for (port 34962 and following) is only in the IANA port-numbers file.

The only question that remains for me is the copyright of the IANA file. Can we simply copy over that file or do we have a license problem with it?

P.S: Of course, we could merge both files into one, but there will be a lot of duplicates. I leave that as an exercise for the interested reader ;-)
