I'm no genius, but doesn't the article say it's UDP? (in the name of
the protocol even)
I was trying to emphasize "replacement", not UDP. This is, that works on
the same layer, that requires OS-level modifications, as opposed to a
protocol that could be similar to UDP but work on the application layer.
My point was that all that work could be focused on a *really* good
transport (even with end-user multihoming without bloating the routing
table), and have streamlined TCP and UDP that takes advantage of the new
Everyone's calling upon SCTP. Implementing similar techniques on multiple
transport protocols calls for a transport-session separation.
