See Alan's mail.  All this was his proposal, I just got it accepted
upstream.

The problem to solve is if you have a distributed network port set.
Apparently NetBIOS has it but I could also imagine this to be useful in
cluster implementations which have to appear as one machine.  In this
case, before binding to a given port, you have to make sure no other
machine already handles this port.
