I think M. Yawney is referring to Susan Snyder's essay, "Naming Names in
All's Well that Ends Well," Shakespeare Quarterly 43 (1992): 265-79.

If an Attendant attends on a King or Lord, John Reed would be inviting
ridicule
to have Attendant = Porter.

Because Kings and Lords are nobly, or at least gently, attended; while a
Porter
is a low, rough fellow.

Giving point to Wallace Stevens'

I had as lief be embraced by the porter at the hotel
As to get no more from the moonlight
Than your moist hand.
