Why doesn't AWS throttle ports 465 and 587?

Default rate limits are enforced on port 25, as this is the common sending port. This leads to a lot of spam being sent on this port. To prevent this, AWS EC2 throttles port 25 by default. Ports 465 and 587 are less well known, and are not as subject to as much spam abuse.
