Maybe there's a better phrase. I am defining a control plane as a  
point-to-point connection between sources of queries and sources of  
answers such that actions taken by any "actual" query source can  
"actually" by controlled by the "actual" answer source in such a way  
that all other query sources remain unaffected in any way.

95% of the 'net were *not* the cause of teh 2002 pain. Or any of the  
attacks since then.
