It may also have the opposite effect -- to lock up MPTCP in the ghetto of
proxy-to-proxy protocols, and destroy the (positive) perception of MPTCP
as a suitable end-to-end protocol.

(IMHO, upstreaming MPTCP into the Linux kernel would do more for MPTCP
deployment than anything that the IETF may do, but I guess that's somewhat
off-topic for this discussion.)
