Shim6 is unfortunately broken, until the day when all middleboxes
allow the extension headers to pass, which is far from true today.
MPTCP only works for TCP. Mosh aparently only works for SSH. Happy
eyeballs only works for browsers. This is far from a closed topic.

That's unclear to me. Anyway, it might be worth reviewing the
gap analysis at http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7010
(which was mainly aimed at enterprises) to see how it looks
for homenets.

"Just"?? Anyway, see my rant in CCR:
