SCTP [1] is supposed to be fixing a lot of these issues. Support for
it is already available in the main *nixes, there is also a user space
library.  Even Vista is going to support it! [2]

It might make sense in rfc3920bis to make a small note that SCTP can
be used as a 'drop in' replacement for TCP as long as both hosts
supports it.
