Scratch that. After some more research, I found this in socket (7):

SO_BINDTODEVICE
      Bind  this  socket to a particular device like "eth0", as speci-
      fied in the passed interface name.  If  the  name  is  an  empty
      string  or  the option length is zero, the socket device binding
      is removed.  The passed option is a variable-length  null-termi-
      nated  interface  name string with the maximum size of IFNAMSIZ.
      If a socket is bound to an interface, only packets received from
      that  particular  interface  are  processed by the socket.  Note
      that this only works for some socket types, particularly AF_INET
      sockets.   It  is  not  supported for packet sockets (use normal
      bind(8) there)

So using wildcard address and this socket option should be the
least-effort way to support dual-stack display networks if I get it
right...
