Perhaps not surprising at all - one point of "clean slate" as a research 
agenda was to consider alternatives to the Internet's design principles!

I'm personally really uncomfortable about confusing research agendas 
with ideas such as "rights", "requirements", and "spirit".  The latter 
terms seem to be about the Law, Product Engineering, and Law/Religion 

Research (I agree with John Day on this!) is about formulating questions 
and answering them.
