Yeah, but that's an implementation issue, requiring modification of Tor
Client and Tor Server to accommodate a transport system that can work
with multiple TCP connection for a single client.
TLS have also a session resume mechanism, maybe useful, to
suspend/resume/reattach sessions?

However the point is, assumed that could be technically feasible to do
it so that for end-user it's really easy to use, how really it would
increase the amount of 'bridge'?

I mean, how many additional different IP addresses and hostname could be
donated in support of Tor?

Reducing the entrance barrier by simplifying the active actions of
supporting Tor network, could make the network exponentially increase
it's "nodes" ?
