Of course, if you're going to do that -- have the application negotiate 
a particular kind of service rather than have the network "inspect" the 
packets and guess what service is needed -- you need a control plane 
protocol (let's call it "signalling") to do the negotiation, and you no 
longer have the connectionless/stateless paradigm on which IP is founded.
