        I agree with Dan. If map and mtr could turn this discussion
around and try to find some common ground and consensus between their
two opposing viewpoints, I wonder if they wouldn't have the start of a
new model that might take this discourse up to another plateau?

        The only thing good about the ISORM, or the TCP/IP model, is
that it gives us a map (no pun :-) and a glossary for conversing about
protocols. Neither model seems entirely adequate. Network
management, for example, seems to have broken both models. [no
flames, please]. Thankfully, that doesn't stop the implementors or
protocol-builders.

        I think the considerable expertise of Padlipsky, Rose, Karn,
et al could make some progress along these lines and transform this
discussion from a memorable summer diversion into the beginning of
something new. How about it? We need some common ground.

extinguisher?]
