RFC 4898 was the penultimate deliverable for the Web100 project.
If you want a production grade implementation of Web100, please ask you OS vendor to support RFC 4898 in their products.

Current Web100 Statement of Work
While the national high-performance network infrastructure has grown
tremendously both in bandwidth and accessibility, it is still common for
applications, hosts, researchers and other users to be unable to take full
advantage of this new and improved infrastructure. Without expert attention
from network engineers, users are unlikely to achieve even 10 Mbps single
stream TCP transfers, despite the fact that the underlying network
infrastructure can support data rates of 100Mbps or more. On unloaded
networks, this poor performance can be attributed primarily to two factors:
host system software (principally TCP) that is optimized for low bandwidth
environments and the lack of effective instrumentation and tools to diagnose
performance issues at the end hosts.

- Web100 Concept Paper
When a typical academic researcher attempts to transfer large datasets using
conventional vendor-supplied FTP-based programs on high-performance LAN or WAN
networks that are purported to provide 100-Mbps (megabits/second) performance,
the researcher is often lucky to see 10-Mbps actual transfer rates. This
result is not unique to just FTP; similarly poor results are seen with almost
all other out-of-the-box (and much custom) networking software.
