In short, no.

"down" means something very specific for zones; see the comment
for "ZONE_IS_SHUTTING_DOWN" through to "ZONE_IS_FREE" in

But I think by down you mean "not running": If a zone is not running
(i.e. it is in the "installed" state) then (unless there are bugs) there
should be no network interfaces for it.
