Hi,

we're not asked to have a technical discussion. We're asked whether we support this work in MPTCP, and I don't, for the reasons stated. I think MPTCP is architecturally the wrong starting point for solutions to this operator problem space.

> Is it respectful for people to cite April 1 in a serous technical discussion?

I provided the reference, because it summarizes my standpoint in a - what I consider - humorous way. I do apologize if this caused offense. As I said, I do believe that you can bang MPTCP out of shape to make it do what's needed here - but that is true for other existing starting points, some of which might be a more natural fit. Or not - that's not the question we're asked to answer here.
