I know, it's not because of some recent addition, i
just took your commit message as a reminder to ask
the question again.

I already asked this 1-2 months ago when i was planning
to do similar work on ipfw/dummynet, and realised how
large netinet/ has become.

I guess whoever responded at the time did not realized
the number of files involved.
Even tcp_* and ip_* account for a large number of files,
but there is more legacy there (especially for the headers)
so they are harder to move around.
In the sctp case, though, legacy should not be an issue.
