Heck, even HTTP/1.1 as-is can take advantage of SCTP, and with very
little transport change/mapping it can utilize it very well for framing
as well getting rid of many transport & framing issues of HTTP/1.1.

But SPDY do not.. well sure it addresses the folding issue (there is no
folding in SPDY), but multiple content-length is still an issue. Less so
than in HTTP/1.1 as it's not transport related any more, but still.
