it's a fallacy that you can measure the value of a protocol by looking
at the percentage of transactions, bandwidth, etc. it uses.
In fact the only application protocol I am aware of that is built on the
assumption that the IP address remains constant end to end would be FTP
which is an antique design.
that's because you don't know much about protocols.
