Tramp's scp method is always escorted by an ordinary ssh connection in
order to gather file information. That is sufficient for today. When
Andreas' suggestion is added (use of ControlMaster), scp might be even
more efficient.

An extension of ssh is nothing I expect for next time. What could be
helpful is an own small server process on the remote side (via an ssh
connection), which provides the needed file information directly to
Tramp. The FISH server is such an approach, I'm playing with these
days. But I'm still not happy with performance.

OK, I'll change the default.

Best regards, Michael.
