As far as I recall, there's a hosts file that resolves localhost to on Windows, which means a user could break their own configuration if they so desired. Definitely on all supported versions we should be able to assume localhost can be resolved.

I haven't checked out how it deals with IPv6, but presumably there's a priority or another hosts file that will cover it.
