It certainly could be.

The original WG2 vote on various packages can be found at
<>.  In particular, there were 5 votes
to do a simple TCP package in WG2 and only 1 vote to postpone it to a
future WG, and likewise for a simple UDP package.  My proposals can
be found at <> and
<> respectively.

For full socket support, however, there were 6 votes to postpone and
only 2 votes for a WG2 effort.  I suppose that the members thought it
would be an excessive amount of work.  Still, if someone else is doing
that work, I'd be open to a request to reconsider it.
