Still having said that, I think it would be the role of researchers at the CCN layer to
follow the work evolving at the well understood http layer, try to adapt it as closely 
as possible to these other layers, and provide feedback when architectural decisions at one layer are making logical mistakes that appear when enlarging the view to the wider perspective.
That has to be done very carefully, in order not to derail consensus at the simpler layer,
but it would help provide constraints and motivations for doing things correctly.
