--- Comment #4 from John Baldwin <jhb at FreeBSD.org> ---
If we don't support it, should we remove the flags from netdb.h so that
software fails to compile (instead of generating a runtime error)?

RFC 3493 requires these flags (by my reading), so we are non-conforming and
should not list it in STANDARDS unless we also include a caveat for the parts
we don't implement (and arguably we should fix our implementation to be
conforming instead).
