Mike,

I enjoyed you reference to HMP being in the "Massachusetts" layer. It
might be more accurate to say that it is in the Massachusetts "stack" :-).

I do think it is correct that is should be shown as a transport layer
protocol.

EGP, GGP, and other similar internet protocols provide services
normally thought of as in the transport [, presentation ?] and
application layers. The output of these protocols are used to provide
routing data for the internet layer. I don't think that this puts
them in the internet layer.

Bob
