Yes, that's pretty much the idea. In fact, we have seen arguments on the
QUIC WG list that the scenarios in which multipath is used for
reliability are already supported with the connection migration features
of QUIC  V1. It is not clear that there is a technical need for ATSSS
style proxies in QUIC at all, even with just QUIC V1.

Yes an No. If you do not turn on "airplane mode" or something similar,
the cellular network does indeed track the location of the device -- it
needs to do that if the device is to receive calls. But the cellular
network does not normally receive a copy of the data sent over the Wi-Fi
network. The ATSSS architecture changes that: instead of sending the
data from the device directly to the destination server, the packets
would take a detour through the ATSSS proxy of the cellular network
operator. At a minimum, this enables the cellular network to log the
connection's metadata.
