Is there any good reason to specify both, socket types and device type?
I'd say device type is redundant. The point is even more stronger as
device type names are misleading. I'd say they should be
"request-reply", "publish-subscribe", "push-pull" if needed at all.

Is there any good reason to specify "xrep" vs "rep" socket types?
I think it's implementation defined of whether it supports request
multiplexing or other specific features of "x" kind of socket.
