Since e2e-interest is the name of this list, it can be assumed that
everybody here has as least an intuitive understanding of what e2e issues
are. Including myself.
One could argue that OpenFlow is just too tied to Network ans under-network
Layers, and that it has nothing to do with e2e aspects. Maybe.
I think that if end systems become able to dynamically reconfigure the
network to suit their needs, this can change many of the assumptions made by
present days e2e protocols, rendering some parts of them unnecessary, and
other parts insufficient.
