At the meeting at IETF97 I volunteered to create a document to describe benefits provided by middleboxes, to aid in evaluating the trade-offs of exposing transport-layer information to the network.
Please see the draft below for our initial ideas on this subject.
As always, comments and additional material welcome.

A new version of I-D, draft-dolson-plus-middlebox-benefits-00.txt
has been successfully submitted by David Dolson and posted to the
IETF repository.

Name:		draft-dolson-plus-middlebox-benefits
Revision:	00
Title:		Benefits of Middleboxes to the Internet
Document date:	2017-01-23
Group:		Individual Submission
Pages:		12
URL:            https://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-dolson-plus-middlebox-benefits-00.txt
Status:         https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-dolson-plus-middlebox-benefits/
Htmlized:       https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-dolson-plus-middlebox-benefits-00

   At IETF97, at a meeting regarding the Path Layer UDP Substrate (PLUS)
   protocol, a request was made for documentation about the benefits
   that might be provided by permitting middleboxes to have some
   visibility to transport-layer information.

   This document summarizes benefits provided to the Internet by
   middleboxes -- intermediary devices that provide functions apart from
   normal IP routing between a source and destination host [RFC3234].

   RFC3234 defines a taxonomy of middleboxes and issues in the internet
   circa 2002.  Most of those middleboxes utilized or modified
   application-layer data.  This document will focus primarily on
   devices that observe and act on information found in the transport
   layer, most commonly TCP at this time.

   A primary goal of this document is to provide information to working
   groups developing new transport protocols, in particular the PLUS and
   QUIC working groups, to aid understanding of what might be gained or
   lost by design decisions.


Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission
until the htmlized version and diff are available at tools.ietf.org.
