Description

In TcpChannel, the endpoint of the face is checked for localhost scope (https://github.com/named-data/NFD/blob/master/daemon/face/tcp-channel.cpp#L138), but in UdpChannel, there is no such check, and so it is not possible to make a local UDP face. As a result, applications trying to register prefixes with a UDP face are rejected for violating localhost scope.
