Good point. I know of an upcoming book "Patterns of Protocols:
Rethinking Network Architecture" by JOHN DAY (Publisher: Pearson) that
offers some ideas on what a "layer" is and should do, which draws on the
IPC OS model and has an interesting historical perspective on how we
neglected fundamental problems like multihoming, etc. for long. I
believe the book should come out soon this fall.
