That same constraint is true of any UDP protocol too, and indeed any protocol
not entirely based on FEC (which rather rules out ethernet based solutions)

You also dont need much buffering for a smart embedded stack, its no secret
that some embedded tcps dont buffer the data but pointers to constant data and
values for only non constant objects. You really can make a minimal TCP very
low resource.
