Abstract 

   This memo specifies a message-oriented extension for Multipath TCP 
   (MPTCP) which aims to serve high-bandwidth and real-time 
   applications. By introducing a message mapping to MPTCP, Message-
   Oriented MPTCP (MO-MPTCP) attaches some message features like 
   boundaries, priority and dependency to bytestream. With such 
   message-oriented information, MPTCP senders can optimize their 
   transfers.
