Who ever wrote that doesn't know what they're talking about. LISP is
not the IETF's proposed solution (the IETF don't have one, the IRTF do),
and streaming media was seen to be one of the early applications of the
Internet - these types of applications is why TCP was split out of
IP, why UDP was invented, and why UDP has has a significantly
different protocol number to TCP.
