This document provides an approach how to reason about the composition of multi-path aware transport stacks. It discusses how to compose the functionality needed by stacking existing internet protocols and the fundamental mechanisms that are used in multi-path systems and the consequences of applying them to different granularities of communication units, e.g, on a message or stream granularity. This document is targeted as guidance for automation of destination selection, path selection, and transport protocol selection.
