comment Is it safe to serve HTTP/HTTPS over ports 8080/8443
We ended up using the main webserver to proxy requests to the services offered on other ports. Because the other services need to scale for additional processing power rather than because they hit network limits, and the size of requests and responses is relatively low, this arrangement works very nicely with the main load-balanced website easily absorbing the cost of proxying.

One of my jobs is running a website that indexes shoutcast streams, and it's a common complaint that some users behind corporate networks can't listen to streams that are running over non-standard ports. However, 8080 and 8443 seem to be a bit special, but probably not special enough. I'd say that running a service on 800 is particularly risky because it falls under "well-known" ports that are considerably more likely to be blocked.

The services in question are never typed into the browser... rather they are pointed to from resources served over the normal ports. It seems, however, that my concerns about the reliability of my approach are well justified.

We're using Web and Worker roles in Azure Cloud services. As far as I can tell, it's not possible to point a second VIP at a different machine unless we switch to Azure VMs. Other options include replacing the entire front-end webserver with a proxy, but obviously using different ports would solve this problem with less expense.

Your question belongs on ServerFault. You also might consider expanding your description to include things such as what you've tried, which error messages you are seeing, whether you have an unusual setup and so on.
