There's plenty of reason to believe that it won't work well. Static
address selection rules, no way for hosts to know which prefixes will
work better, inability of most existing transport protocols to fail
to alternate addresses.
One way to fix that would be multipath transport protocols. Rather
than try to guess what works best, just use all of them (or at least
several) and get better performance without having to make difficult
It's not clear to me from the above whether you mean something
like "use SCTP", something like "build ICE-like candidate selection
algorithms into the transport protocols, so that the best path gets
selected", or "run all available transports from all available flow
endpoints for as long as the flow lasts".
Care to clarify?
