You definitely use better terminology than me. :-)

This is why I wrote that Tor should make a new circuit for every top
TCP-based protocol. So Tor would map TCP connection to one circuit so
other TCP connections would be independent from underlying
transmission errors.

Sorry, I do not know how I would describe this idea better. As is was
only one simple thought: use already implemented things.
