For this to happen, someone should step forward, investigate the
compatibility between the Windows implementation of filesystem sockets
with what Emacs uses for server/client connections, and if they are
compatible, write code to detect at runtime whether this feature is
supported, and if so, activate it.  No one did that yet, AFAIK.

There's a compatibility issue to consider here: an emacsclient running
on a Windows system that supports these sockets will only work with
Emacs versions which also support such sockets.  So I guess we will
need some user option and emacsclient command-line option to allow

Feel free to submit a feature request bug report about this, so that
this is tracked by our issue tracker.
