I'm not a native English speaker and I'm sorry if I was not clear enough 
in my initial e-mail. I was talking about existing operational practices 
hindered by end-to-end encryption and that PLUS can bring back (i.e. 
referring to a statement today that "mobile operators need PLUS").

Your example is covers new functionality to enable FWs/etc with 
"signaling and control impaired with respect to TCP" (As Joe Hildebrand 
stated on one of the slides on his presentation at the BoF). Except that 
a solution not requiring PLUS is preferable, there's nothing wrong with 
this IMHO.
