I'm looking at TAPS too as I'm looking for a general transport API other
than TCP/UDP.

The kind of transport services we have developed in here
https://git.fd.io/cicn/ do not fit in the current API.
Full user land implementation, which seems to be accepted nowadays, but not
at all a few years back.
The API however is a hack of the INET API, which is rather obsolete, but
this is what current apps can use.
So, hope TAPS gets traction.

And yes, IPv6, absolutely. Going through IPv4 middle boxes is a nightmare.
No hope there.

And yes, flow queueing, absolutely. Flow isolation, becomes fundamental is
such a zoo, or jungle.
