It should be explained in more detail: The reason is that "udp" seems to 
immediately imply "unicast unreliable transfer" which current "udp" is 
definitely not. Quite the opposite: It's multicast and it's reliable.

The proposition is to rename "udp" to "epgm" which stands for 
"encapuslated PGM".

If anybody has strong feeling about the current naming of the protocols, 
please, shout now!
