We all know what the end-to-end principle means. It's (reportedly) THE
guiding principle of the IETF, and THE guiding principle of IETF design
decisions. The problem I am trying to demonstrate with this dictionary
analysis, is that average non-indoctrinated person needs to travel a
long way from the simple word "end" in order to get to the definition
that the IETF actually means.
It is the principle of not the IETF but the Internet.
As you should recognize, most, if not all, of recent activity of
IETF is against the principle, against which, the Internet is
Well organized standardization body such as IETF is an intermediate
intelligent entity between end users and the Internet.
That is, according to the principle, an intermediate intelligent
entity of IETF MUST be removed.
