While SCTP has some nice advantages in general (I think it is a pity it is not used more) I wonder how well these benefits translate into the database space. Many databases are run either in a controlled server environment with no direct access from the Internet, or locally on the same machine as the application. In those environments you generally do not have to worry about SYN floods or asymmetric links.

Do you have any specific use case in mind?
