There's no reason we can't, in principle, support a listen-only AF_UNIX ORPort or DirPort or whatever.

The question is, is there any reason to do so?

I think this is a fine idea - one reason might be to privilege separate specific programs. Seems useful in a future where we may want to use websockets or something else to talk to a unix socket, etc.

I don't think we've found demand for this over the past 2 years. Closing.
