NUMA and Mosix

Mosix, or Mosix-like clustering with "shared" memory and process migration, would seem to be a special case of NUMA.
Are their plans to use pluggable transport layers (e.g. TCP/IP, Infiniband, etc.) in the Linux NUMA architecture, to bring these scalability algorithms to next-generation "Mosix" based on NUMA? It would seem this would simplify application development if the same process affinity user space calls could be used, rather than having one set for NUMA and another for Mosix.
