The Internet transport layer's lack of end-to-end'ness has inspired people to try to work against the influence of certain middleboxes. It has become common to use HTTP as a substrate [RFC 3205]. There have also been proposals to realize transport services that up to now could not be provided by TCP, some have built new transports on top of “UDP” (e.g. QUIC) and some have proposed something that looks as much as possible like "normal TCP" on the wire (MPTCP [RFC6824], Minion , "Inner Space for TCP Options", which puts options in the TCP payload ).
