Yes, winsock starts correctly (i.e., WSAStartup() succeeds) even with no
access to these keys.
Here is a table that summarizes my findings:
winsock winsock2 WSAStartup notes
======= ======== ========== =====
yes yes succeeds exim: starts up
no yes succeeds exim: IPv4 socket creation failed
yes no fails exim: cannot find smtp/tcp service
no no fails exim: cannot find smtp/tcp service
no no succeeds strace exim: IPv4 socket creation failed
