This is not reliable information since a peer may have multiple
different P2P Interface Addresses if it happens to be in multiple
groups. As such, I don't think it would be a good idea to expose this
information in the way done here. For the P2P Interface Address to be
unique, the request would need to be made for a specific group, i.e.,
using the peer's P2P Device Address and the local group as the way to
identify what to fetch.
