Looking through the list, I notice that some of the protocols contain
domain (application) specific functionality:

  ICE    -- content exchange
  IOTP   -- internet commerce
  TIP    -- two-phase transaction commits
  WF-XML -- workflow
  Jabber -- instant messaging

This might be part of or a better label ("domain specific [portions]")
for "business process".

Typically, those who are developing "generic" protocols are doing so
to provide "domain specific" applications a common protocol to use.
TIP, on the other hand, could be defined as an extension to a generic
protocol.
