Subject: Some clarifications

In yesterday's RUTS BOF, it was mentioned (by Jim Gettys?) that it would
be nice if TCP had a call back channel for HTTP.  Can someone explained how
that call back channel will be used by HTTP?  What are the requirements of
the channel?  It was also mentioned that the socket API should provide 
mechanisms to get back some more TCP info.  What info is needed?  I remembered
RTT being mentioned...  And how they will be used by HTTP?

In the HTTP-NG BOF, a question was asked about the proposed transport layer
requirements.  The answer was that it should not be discussed in the BOF.
I guess it is OK to state them here...  Can the chairs do that?  Thanks.
