Alex,

I think that I will opt for datagrams too. The only part of the network
that you can really trust is that which you control. It is the only
part of the network that exists to serve YOUR needs. For this reason I
am going to want some sort of reliable transport service sitting on top
of the network. Sure the network may seem reliable but can you always
be sure? At least a reliable transport service can keep trying even
though the underlying virtual circuit network has done a reset on your
logical channel.
