Received wisdom here for UDP is, multicasting, more efficient
on the network, and it is not difficult to overcome
the reliability due to packet loss by building over
UDP. There are always alternatives. The trick here
is that dispatch has to broadcast to multiple units
once. Like others, the notion that web services
built badly over HTTP may do damage to an already
congested network is of concern. Again, I am
countering Daniel's assertion that UDP is out
and HTTP is in. UDP is still healthy. That said,
we are always investigating alternatives but not
because of momentum. That we don't need.
Would the web still be the web without HTTP?

Don't understand. Received wisdom is the opposite:
"Use UDP in applications where reliability is not critical"
"TCP ensures reliable transmission across networks, delivering data in
sequence without errors, loss, or duplication."
