SCTP is used in mobile telco environments; the control plane for
3G and 4G networks uses SCTP (or TCP as an option, but mostly SCTP).

NetBSD is a server OS; and could be viable in that market, which
currently is mostly Linux (AFAICT), which does have a viable SCTP stack.

It's understandable why macOS (a client OS) doesn't support SCTP.

Besides the rest of your arguments (which may be valid), this particular
one is not.
