>     * Why is DTLS sock not just an extension to UDP sock? The DTLS implementation would then be specific to the network stack (e.g. GNRC), but that would still be preferable to pushing it to the application layer IMHO

As TLS is not just an extension of TCP (it is used with QUIC as well e.g.), DTLS is not an extension of UDP, as such you might want to have the possibility to use other datagram-based transports with DTLS. That's why DTLS sock is not just an extension to UDP sock.
