Adapted from draft-iab-ip-model-evolution:

   'Since the Internet Protocol was first published as [IEN028] in 1978,
    IP has provided a network-layer connectivity service to upper-layer
    protocols and applications.  The basic IP service model was
    documented in the original IEN's (and subsequently in the RFC's that
    obsolete them).  However, since the mantra [is] "Everything Over [HTTP]'

It is easier not to "worry about about interoperability of clients 
and servers when the server", thanks to the magic of fog computing, 
"can simply push to the client all the code it needs to be interoperable".

Instead of talking about finding a role in this "post-standardization 
environment" [sic], the IETF might as well shut down the Applications 
Area and create a Web Area.
