This would benefit a lot to various proxies and distributed MySQL clusters designs, by adding one more TCP handshake round-trip. 

Client                 Server 
<-------NEW ENDPOINT----- 
------   MySQL     ----> 
------ Handshake -----> 

What's added to current protocol is that a new endpoint in included in the login response. Client will then choose to close current TCP connection while start another with the redirected destination.

How to repeat:
Feature request, non-repeatable.
