That's fine for most things but for BGP it's a problem. BGP is driven by announcemnts - routers announce to their peers the routes they are providing. If the TCP connection is reset a router has to remove the announcements that peer was making to it. This could easily cause loss of connectivity for large portions of the Internet.
