As for solutions, transport and application layers must, of course,
be modified, as has been pointed out in my draft. There can be no
generic session layer defined over, say, UDP.
However, the split is at the IP layer, because it should be available
to all the transport layers.
The set of a limited number of transport protocol is not the Internet
