There isn't much problem with this model on the receive end, assuming that the kernel correctly classifies packets and sends them to the right process.
As for sending, all that is necessary is a packet verifier, that makes sure the packet is appropriate for the given socket (which should be a lot simpler than a full TCP send implementation). If the packet shouldn't be getting sent from the socket, the kernel doesn't transmit it.
