   From the Abstract:

 The end to end principle is the core architectural guideline of the 
 Internet. In this document, we briefly examine the development of the
 end to end principle as it has been applied to the Internet
 architecture over the years. We discuss current trends in the
 evolution of the Internet architecture in relation to the end to
 end principle, and try to draw some conclusion about the
 evolution of the end to end principle, and thus for the Internet
 architecture which it supports, in light of these current trends.


     Leslie Daigle,
     For the IAB.
