1) If you need end-to-end reliability, you cannot abdicate the checking to
lower protocol layers
2) TCP has all of the mechanisms needed for end-to-end reliability
3) Messaging protocols need end-to-end reliability
The quoted result follows directly.
/cco (who knows from experience why ethernet packets need internal
checksums, even though the hardware rejects packets with bad CRC values)
