It seems to me that you are saying that an application doing explicit multipathing now will continue to need to be explicit about it in the future. And yes, when the ability to control MPTCP at the application level becomes available, such an application may well want to avail itself of those controls. But such applications are relatively rare. The vast majority of applications just make "a TCP connection" to somewhere; they will be able to benefit from multiple subflows (if their traffic is of the type that benefits, of course) without any changes at all.
