Reading through the draft Outcome Document for Netmundial that was released today.

First question:
Can someone involved in the drafting of this text please explain what this means?

"equal technical treatment of all protocols and data, delivered by the underlying communications”

I believe Brian had a similar question on the leaked document.  
I don’t believe “equal technical treatment of all protocols” is really possible on the Internet (or any coherent network), especially while meeting the “Unified and Unfragmented Space” principle.

Perhaps if I understood the intent behind the text, it would make more sense.
