I think the main problem here is that it's not easy to write reliable tests that work across all platforms (getaddrinfo(host, 'ftp') returning UDP addresses on FreeBSD/Qemu only is an example).
We might try to go a little deeper as you suggested but it's very likely that some buildbots turn red, IMHO.

This is already done, although for IPv4 only and by using localhost instead of google.com.
infos = socket.getaddrinfo(HOST, None, socket.AF_INET)
for family, _, _, _, _ in infos:
I'm attaching a new patch which adds some additional checks.
Feel free to extend it, if you want.
