In fact colleagues of mine once in Delphi implemented a TCP - like 
solution that uses UDP transfer to do secure, especially low overhead 
transfers via GPRS.

So I understand that such User-space IP stack extensions might make 
sense in certain cases.

But a User-Space "TCP/IP-Stack" implementation that sits on naked 
Ethernet does not seem to make any practical sense.
