Not sure whether you or others are interested in discussing different
Your slides on architectural principles are particularly striking, to me,
because we seem to have so few references to those principles.
I was intrigued by your sense of the IAB Kobe decision on CLNP (OSI).
My own sense at the time was that OSI was effectively already dead and that
the IAB decision was the final attempt to salvage something from it. (Had
there been a real, public process considering alternatives, it is not clear
that CLNP should have lost. The preemptive nature of the IAB decision
overwhelmed that technical discussion with an IETF identity crisis.)
