    Yes, but for IPv4/6 it's not an issue. Some implementations might
    handle all-zeros and the spec _currently_ calls for it. In this case an
    alignment would be good.

    I guess I'll just go ahead and file a problem report with the spec.
    Maybe the Unix vendors will test their implementations in provide feedback.
