What a GREAT idea. I don't know why we never thought of it. As a 
starter, I would like my end system to reconfigure the network to give 
me all the available bandwidth and to drop none of my packets.  So, that 
gets rid of the "fairness" assumption of present day E2E protocols and 
avoids the messiness of statistical multiplexing.
