And, IMHO, the most important argument is, probably, in terms of
simplicity and universality of kernel part.
e.g. MIP6 uses XFRM / stackable destination architecture as its
fundamental infrastructure.

They (simplicity and universality) are unlikely measurable, though.

I belive that we can find solutions to solve these issues (if any).
