I would call it a missing feature.

The .netns_ok flag indicates that someone has audited the code and made
certain it all works with network namespaces.

Skimming the code I don't see anything that jumps out as me as
wrong. And it looks like Alexy did the work in Jan of 2010.

commit a92df2545402c1a08e7a158f4477a52dea0eeeed

netns xfrm: ipcomp support

However it is clear that no one has actually tested ipcomp with
network namespaces.

If you have a clue what is going on with ip compression my
recommendation would be to add .netns_ok = 1. Verify that the
everything works and send the patch. You probably want to
verify and test ipv6 as well. It really looks like the code
is fine and it just needs to be enabled.
