Not to disagree with you on your argument, but to clarify: what you are
calling "domain sockets" are actually called "UNIX-domain sockets". The
term "domain" refers to the protocol family, which is specified during
creation of every socket. Among other things, the domain determines the
namespace for the socket's binding--e.g. the UNIX domain (PF_UNIX) for
paths in the UNIX filesystem, or the Internet domain (PF_INET) for IP +
port. There are additional domains for other protocol families; see the
PF_ definitions in <sys/socket.h>.
