I dunno - once you throw "based on the Internet" in there pretty
much anything goes. Which is not to say that I think his definition
of "protocol" is helpful, since it does not appear to actually *be*
But anyway, I was surprised by some of things for which I haven't
been able to find a definition in IETF documents - for example,
"state," although that's an extremely difficult term for which to do
an exhaustive search and it's very likely out there but hard to find.
