If you need a TCP replacement, you won't find a QUIC one

I think you should re-read the article.

Yes, current RPCs often use TCP, but it's not a great fit.

However, I suspect that if HTTP changes to use a protocol that does out-of-order requests and responses, a fair few applications written to use HTTP will break. Asynchronous stuff often seems to need a mindset that doesn't come naturally to application programmers taught to program on local interactive in-order applications where response time is short and consistent.
