Qi,
I think the idea of using predictability is a good one (eg for a mobile node using MPTCP for handover and a satellite based system).
I agree that the scheduler could be adapted to take account of this knowledge. I guess this would be left to implementers.
For path management, you say there may be useful extensions. I didn’t quite follow your arguments here - it would be good if you could explain a bit more about this, as this might be something worth specifying

Thanks
phil
