I think it is a given the semantics of ITC referring to within one process
otherwise it would be IPC: localhost, network or internet: lower case 'i'.

The introduction for Internet Sockets on Wikipedia gives this:

"In computer networking, an *Internet socket* or *network socket* is an
endpoint of a bidirectional
 communication flow <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communication_flow> across
anInternet Protocol
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Protocol>-based computer
network <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_network>, such as the
Internet <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet>."

Too much semantics already :/

Does any document really use inter-thread communication to refer to
multi-threaded IPC?
