Further to what I said below.

Consider the example where I want to allow access to public mail archives 
(/pipermail/ URLs) via http on port 80 and deliver access to private 
archives, admin interface and such (/mailman/ URLs) via https on port 443. 
The present features allow that. Your suggested bug fix doesn't allow that.

No it is not a bug, it is a feature.

DEFAULT_URL_HOST defines a host, not a host and a port on that host.

DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN and PUBLIC_ARCHIVE_URL define partial URLs, parts of 
which are a scheme, a placeholder for a hostname, optionally a port, and 
the start of a URI.

These two parameters allow flexibility in defining the form of URLs used by 
Mailman which can be adjusted to match what you choose to assign in the 
Alias and ScriptAlias related directives in your Apache server's httpd.conf
