Why you need it?
I thought a common session control layer as in the OSI reference model
should have been introduced when HTTP upgraded from 1.0 to 1.1 in which
"Keep-Alive" became the default. If introduced, I think it might have
made things simple and clear including parallel and/or pipelined sessions
on a single TCP connection, not only for HTTP but for arbitrary protocols,
reducing the latency between peers with long RTT.
I remember that someone suggested such a simple and generic session control
for HTTP/1.1 but it is not supported, but "chunked" and "content-length"
based message delimiter just for a single session is adopted.
But anyway I needed some kind of multiplexing on a TCP connection,
I made several experimental protocols including Teleport/Vehicle, ThruWay,
and SockMux. I'm using the last one yet to connect between DeleGates as
