That's right.

Note that this can cause potential problems for tech-savvy end users who
will find themselves connecting to port 443 but Apache will be able to
tell them they're on a different port. That's not a problem as such, but
it can raise questions.

There's an alternative way to do this which is slightly more complex but
saves on address space even more, which is to use a reverse proxy to do
the work for you. Both Apache and Squid can work like this, but I'll
leave that as a thought experiment for you :)
