HTTP over UDP also allows us to imagine the speed ideal -- a two round trip
web page load, one request for root/click request and concurrent requests
for all contained objects. If this is done over a reliable UDP each object
can have independent packet accounting so problems retrieving it anywhere
along the path has no impact on other objects. It's the fastest, most
robust way to load a page. Pages without content inter-dependencies, super
large objects, slow javascripts, and fast web servers (a lot of ifs I know)
could load on first time visits in under 100 ms over high bandwidth, low
latency networks. Nice!

Of course there are lots of new problems created by moving away from a
connection-oriented transport in general and TCP in particular but this was
a question about the advantages.
