Sorry I misunderstood your email. Yes the above case is clear: if
someone supplies 0/0, s/he will probably not want any specialised
protocols in the return list.

This didn't appear in Remi's list. I have completed the list and put the
cases in the table below; `defaults' is interpreted in the way above.

 +--------------+---------------+---------------+---------------+
 | ai_socktype	| ai_protocol	| Return type	| Return Proto  |
 +--------------+---------------+---------------+---------------+
 | SOCK_DCCP	| IPPROTO_DCCP	| SOCK_DCCP	| IPPROTO_DCCP 	|
 | SOCK_DCCP	| 0		| SOCK_DCCP	| IPPROTO_DCCP 	|
 | 0		| IPPROTO_DCCP	| SOCK_DCCP	| IPPROTO_DCCP	|
 | 0		| 0		| (defaults)	| (defaults)	|
 +--------------+---------------+---------------+---------------+


If at all possible, for UDP-Lite it is similar. Since UDP-Lite is
actually just a form of UDP, this seems much less urgent than DCCP -
one might argue that UDP-Lite falls under SOCK_DGRAM/UDP.

 +-------------+-----------------+-------------+-----------------+
 | ai_socktype | ai_protocol	 | Return type |  Return Proto   |
 +-------------+-----------------+-------------+-----------------+
 | SOCK_DGRAM  | IPPROTO_UDPLITE | SOCK_DGRAM  | IPPROTO_UDPLITE |
 | SOCK_DGRAM  | 0		 | SOCK_DGRAM  | IPPROTO_UDP	 |
 | 0	       | IPPROTO_UDPLITE | SOCK_DGRAM  | IPPROTO_UDPLITE |   
 | 0	       | 0		 | (defaults)  | (defaults)      |
 +-------------+-----------------+-------------+-----------------+

... but it would still be good to have.
