I think your original premise is incorrect.

MPMs are all about waiting on one or more sockets, accepting connections,
handling those connections, and mapping units of work to workers. By its
very nature, it depends upon the sockets.

Apache as a whole should not know about the socket (only the core filters),
but the MPM definitely should. It is the beast which maps *sockets* to
*workers*. It has to know.
