I may appear as unwanted guest in this list.
But, what I feel is that the name should not cause any confusion among

It is quite understood that as Oracle uses ORA, Microsoft uses MS as
prefix and everyone understands that. They what is wrong with XNET. Only
this is we will need one note mentioning that XNET is not a protocol.

To be precise, both transports are IPC (inter-process communication)
implementations and both work via the shared memory. The difference is
the details and in the layering. The one from Borland is known as
code, the newer one is referred to as XNET. We here often used "IPC" to
refer the old implementation, but formally this is not correct. I agree
some confusion could happen, but I see nothing critical here.
