[e2e] end of interest

In fact there seems to be pushback from both ends --- we can't deploy
end-to-end protocols because major companies own the end-host stacks; and we
can't push mechanisms deep into the network because ISPs and router companies
own the network. Arguably the latter source of pushback played a major role
in the emergence of the e2e philosophy; but now we have equally powerful
commercial forces on the other side.
So effectively the only practical mode of deployment seems to be the 'almost'
end-to-end middlebox --- one hop away from the end-host but not quite into
the network (and the Maelstrom work I presented day before yesterday at NSDI
would be one example).

I personally think that the network community has become frustrated with
the inability to explore end-to-end protocols because the endpoint
stacks are "locked in" by vendors in proprietary code.
