That sounds pretty much like an FTP service based on a non-standard 
reimplementation of DCCP. Also I couldn't find any mention of NAT 
friendlyness on the website.

Of course, that could be implemented in VLC, but given afaik atm no 
other VoD server/client uses it, and it is not a formal standard 
either, I'm a bit suspicious. VLC is crippled with many underlying 
libraries. Adding yet another one might not be the best idea, and with 
no formal standard, we can't reimplement FSP either.

If someone is implementing it, it's OK by me to include it, but I'm not 
considering it a must have as is.
