You have to be careful with packet reordering.
Hm. True. Yes, maybe multipath routing is just in theory a good idea. ;-) I also don't really believe in it. Or even believe it is necessary. But some balancing could be useful to have. For example, based on origin. So all packets from same origin goes on the same link, and the other on the other. Is this possible to achieve?
Are these assumptions really true? In my home setup, my ADSL modem is where my telephone socket is. My VPN server is somewhere else and there is a wifi and a powerline link in between. If my neighbors swamp the wifi channel with their torrent download, my VPN will suffer. (Well not really, i known this wifi stuff better than my neighbors)
I think we talk about different topologies here. We have a gateway server on collocation, with VPN servers spread around the country. We connect all nodes to those VPN servers, and VPN servers to gateway server. We do not use ADSL uplinks for anything else than just to connect to those VPN servers.
I am not talking about user's VPN servers, but network's. The ones which allow nodes to be in the same network even if there is no (yet) existing WiFi link between them.
