We can now if you like. But not all protocols use TCP.
David (Bird) listed some of the things that are in common usage: ICMP
DestUnreach (no specific code), TCP RST, and dropping packets. Each have
different characteristics. I think that one product of the discussion in
London was that we don't need to be restricted to choosing from that set if
we think that there is something better.
