That's something I agree with.

But the way I see the things, if one's really needs I/O bandwidth, low
latency and IOPS done in consumer-grade hardware, one should use FCoE,
not NFS. Especially if that's 'one initiator - one target'

NFS was designed for multiple clients concurrently accessing the sames
shares, and in this scenario bonding seems much more simplier and
justified solution.
