I'm rusty on LISP, but I believe it was designed to solve the DFZ 
problem itself, while SCTP and Multipath TCP solve issues such as being 
able to change the layer3 address on an existing connection (supporting 
rapid renumbering and multipath failover/loadbalancing utilizing 
multiple layer 3 addresses (1 per path).

In an ideal world, we'd be using both.
