If you try to create a datagram socket with the current AF_UNIX changes on Windows the error is:

OSError: [WinError 10047] An address incompatible with the requested protocol was used

All of the examples given will fail to load with AttributeError on Windows because socket.AF_UNIX is not a valid attribute on Windows.

I think it's possible that there is code that detects whether AF_UNIX is an attribute on socket or not and does something different on Windows, but I haven't seen an example of it so far.

I can make the changes to WIN_AF_UNIX when I continue working on this, just in case there is portable code out there somewhere.
