"Runs in top of UDP"... "Is not UDP"...
If it has protocol set to 17 it is UDP.
So QUIC is an algorithm instead of a protocol?
it's as much a protocol as http is.. I suppose my point is that it's
some protocol which uses udp as the transport.
Because of this I don't see any (really) kernel/stack changes
required, right? it's just something the application needs to work out
with it's peer(s). No different from http vs smtp...
SCTP was layer 4, if QUIC is the same, than it will too. If QUIC is layer 5
up, it won't. That might be the difference (I haven't looked into QUIC).
