This argument appeals to application requirements, and provides a rationale for moving function upward in a layered system, closer to the application that uses that function. However, low-level mechanisms to support these functions are justified only as performance enhancements. This paper reviews the end-to-end arguments, discusses additional arguments for and against end-to-end implementations and provides an algorithm for transfer of packets together with the discussion of some examples like delivery guarantees, security, duplicate message suppression and queuing.
