That's an old discussion (not to say flamewar). To quote the FreeBSD
handbook:

| It looks that RFC2553 talks too little on wildcard bind issue,
| especially on the port space issue, failure mode and relationship
| between AF_INET/INET6 wildcard bind. There can be several separate
| interpretation for this RFC which conform to it but behaves
| differently.  So, to implement portable application you should assume
| nothing about the behavior in the kernel.
