So we exclude any negotiation mechanism from the start. We do not
start off with an ISAKMP style message saying 'here is what I might
like to propose that we might do, do you have concerns in the matter
that you might like to discuss, perhaps over dinner and a bottle or
two of claret?'. If you implement the ISAKMP protocol in its entirety
you can have up to 6 round trips just to select the producer and 
vintage[1].
