The problem is that both the robustness and the congestion of the Internet arise because it's a dumb network--the intelligence is at the endpoints, much of it encapsulated in TCP, which is responsible for seeing that all the packets in a connection eventually reach the endpoint in the proper order, and, even more important, is also responsible for controlling congestion via flow control.
