Among the many wonderful things Internet has created in the past 2+
decades, it gave birth
to a countless number of "Internet Experts" ...

Perhaps a more organized/focused discussion may help kick off an IETF
WG to identify and
document the problems/needs/requirements and an informational RFC/BCP
can be produced,
then the "experts" will know that for better security and reliability
they don't need to
mutilate internet protocols or dismember the Internet.
