But that information would be useless for the caller. Why return a
value that has no meaning for the caller and can not be used? More so
when the kernel is aware of what the correct meaningful value is?

NETLINK_LISTEN_ALL_NSID is tough due to way it is implemented. But yes,
it should translate the netnsids to be valid in the socket's netns.
That's the only sane way for the listener.
