I don't mean to hijack this thread unnecessarily, but this seems like  
an interesting disconnect between ops people and research people  
(either that or I'm just showing my ignorance, which will be nothing  

Is there a groundswell of *operators* who think TCP should be  
replaced, and believe it can be replaced?

Or is the motivation for replacing TCP mainly felt by those who spend  
a lot of time trying to get maximum performance out of single flows  
over high bandwidth-delay product paths?
