I don't think it should. 0 isn't a valid family, and that's intended to
be generic code. An all-zero address, including a zero family, doesn't
mean localhost; it's an invalid value. It just happens to be what innd
uses to indicate that the given channel isn't a network channel at all.
(So the real bug is in ever passing such a thing to any network_*
function, since it isn't a network address or connection.)
