You might be interested to know that I have been lobbying with the DDN
and BBN for several years now to run an experiment using IP over
ARpanet uncontrolled packets (subtype 3). My reasoning was that, since
some statistics I saw showed that something like half the packets were
arpanet acknowledgments (RFNMs), it would seem that a significant
amount of traffic loading on the net might be eliminated and we might
actually get better performance. However, thus far that experiment has
not been performed.
