You can see lot of intiatives to make things more
TCP friendly to avoid hogging of bandwidth by some
selected applications( mostly multimedia based.) More
details on the intiative can be obtained from
Equation based congestion control and DCCP are some of
the options for such applications which doesnt obey
back off rules.

You can see a clear demarkation in the UDP Vs TCP
study by WPI
figure 6. Also, the analysis of mice Vs elephants is
important in addtion to mis-behaving flows.
Also, Sally floyd maintains a page on recent
measurement studies on TCP-friendly application.
