with the vast majority of traffic these days being web traffic
(thought I saw some stats somewhere measuring (90+% to be http traffic)
AND combined with the extremly high web cache deployment rate(ever 
hear of an ISP who does not use a web cache to maximize the number 
of users he can support),
one wonders what the e2e priniciple really means these days.....???
