I wonder if there is an opportunity for something that pretends to be 
the remote side locally, sends the data via some other 
non-latency-sensitive protocol to a counter part where the counter part 
pretends to be the near side.

Local         /
           /       Remote

Where ---- is Chaosnet over a short distance and ==/== is something else 
over a long distance.  B would pretend to be D so that A could talk to 
D' in a timely manner and conversely C would pretend to be A so that A' 
could talk to D in a timely manner.

I've seen such spoofing / emulation in other protocols.  Maybe the prior 
art can work for Chaosnet.

P.S. Hopefully my ASCII art will survive the trip.
