I missed that part completely. What does it mean that "UDP is too slow
because of packet size of 64 kb" ? To me, it seems an ugly claim. 
Do you know that ethernet will fragment it in pieces of ~1 kb, and the 
most common segment size on the Internet is around 500 bytes ? 
TCP maximum segment size is also 16 bit long.. Your proposal requires
a modification of the most transport protocols of the internet, and 
IPv6 with jumbo frames?

Really, take a look onto DC nets, they are quite old but far superior to
your proposal (but they have some drawbacks).

I see too much approximation, I'm sorry.
