The Internet is built on the end-to-end connectivity principle where a packet sent by a source node reaches the destination mostly unchanged (to the sole exception of the hop limit in IPv6, in fact). IPv6 rearms this approach as it does not allow intermediate routers to modify the packets. The arrival of new network types and associated constraints such asWireless Sensor Networks (WSN), Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and even Delay Tolerant Networks (DTN) challenged the interconnection architecture and revealed its limitations. 

This paper proposes an evolution of the Internet architecture where the interconnection dogma can be weaker and allows some changes in the way packets are processed and network is managed.
