I understand.

But there was no known reason to tweak things for SCTP.
If one wanted to adjust things system wide there was no
way for it to apply to SCTP too.

Also, the TCP controls are not as they would seem.  They don't
directly effect things like the sysctl*{rmem,wmem} stuff does,
rather it influences the dynamic socket buffer sizing which
TCP does.
