I'm sure there could be other ways. Anyway, I believe such delays will

I'm not necessarily disagreeing, but before looking at potential
solutions, can you be a bit more specific in what you believe will
require changes? Let's say you have a system that imposes a (say) 500
ms delay on the first packet of a flow (but no significant change in
subsequent packets). Would you see a requirement for changes in UDP-
based applications? Or would the changes just need to be in TCP-based
to unsubscribe send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with the
word 'unsubscribe' in a single line as the message text body.
