This is why I’ve preferred to push ANY to TCP myself.  It works and is defensible in any/all cases and doesn’t require the user to type +tcp or other esoteric options that are non-obvious.

Well behaved ecosystem will do the right thing, and broken people will remain broken until they fix themselves.
