     I am doing a project about MPTCP, but I have some questions about the closure of MPTCP.
     Why does the closure of subflows need FIN?  Is it necessary and compulsory?  When the sender has sent DATA_FIN to the receiver and received DATA_ACK from the receiver, doesn't the data have been transferred from the sender to the receiver completely? So, I wonder whether we can terminate all subflows by sending RST? It will be faster than the FIN, and it can free resources.
     Thank you very much!
