Sure. If you want to handle this we would be happy to accept the code 
and make 0MQ a bit more future-proof :)

However, before doing any coding, few questions have to considered:

1. Is IPv4 NIC address in textual format determistically distiguishable 
from IPv6 address? If not so, we would have to prefix the address is 
some way, e.g. "IPv4:"

2. When IP address is entered as NIC or host name, does it make any 
difference if the name is translated to IPv4 or IPv6 address? If so, 
user has to have option to specify the protocol.
