SCTP in KAME is complete, stable and fully supported.
It is mainly developed by the SCTP RFC author, Randall Stewart.

A T/TCP alternative as you are describing sounds very
similar to PR-SCTP (Partial Reliability SCTP). (Don't let the
name fool you, please read the internet draft).

There is at least another kernel-level open source implementation,
for Linux, plus other user-level implementations.
