Aside from your URLs being uglier, you should be ok.  Just make sure the settings in catalog.cfg (and in variable.txt, if you use it) include the port.
Really, though, you might consider getting another IP address and using it for the store (both SSL and non).  To me, using a nonstandard port is a sign of either a punk running a web server off of mommy's cable modem, or something more important (read: hackworthy) running on the port the server should be using.

I don't use innodb, so i wouldn't be too helpful in that regard.  
For reference, though, BDB tables can also do transactions.  I haven't tested them performance-wise; i'm just telling what i know.  :)
