I'm working on a project about the current challenges the Internet is 
presenting to the end-to-end argument. I'd be interested to know about 
any protocols, currently in use, that break the end-to-end principle and 
the context where they are used. So far the only one I've found is TCP 
PEP that seems to be in use in satellite networks (Internetworking and 
computing over satellite networks, Yongguang Zhang - 

There also seems to be a number of research projects such as Split TCP 
and LTP-T that I've come across. I'm also interested in these but not to 
the same degree as in protocols that are currently in use today.
