Difference between openvswitch Port and Interface

1)
http://openvswitch.org/pipermail/discuss/2014-January/012793.html

* "A port within a Bridge.  Most commonly, a port has exactly one
'interface', pointed to by its interfaces column. Such a port logically
corresponds to a port on a physical Ethernet switch.  A port with more than
one interface is a ‘bonded port’ (see Bonding Configuration)"

A port can have multiple interfaces for a bond.

Bonding allows more than once interface per port
