"I don't know much about how sockets are implemented on Windows; is there a guarantee that the space of possible socket fds doesn't overlap the space of possible stream fds?"

Python has a low-level _PyVerify_fd() which uses the __pioinfo private array. It looks socket "handles" (small integers betwen 256 and 1000 in my quick tests) and file descriptors overlap. Files get file descriptors between 0 and 2047.
