The style of protocol needed for a single, centralized control
mechanism, versus a distributed and cooperative control mechanism,
typically is quite different.
The obvious example would be centralized dns control -- as we now have
for each node in the tree -- versus efforts to create multiple
authorities for any given node, such as the root.
Did you have in mind a way to reconcile this?
