It won't work. The whole socket machinery assumes type AF_UNIX or
AF_INET. If you set a fd of some other address family type,
a lot of nasty things could happen if this check wasn't there.

Get/SetSocketOptions, Local/RemoteEndPoint etc. simply don't cope
with other AF types. They would return garbage at best.
