The commenter disagrees with the comparison method used and questions the usefulness of the results obtained in the above named work by N.R. Howes and A.C. Weaver (see ibid., vol.15, no.12, p.1507-17, 1989). It is claimed that the comparison method is weak because Howes and Weaver did not take into account: the impact of control flow within a protocol, the coordination required between multiple entities executing within a layer and which share the services of a lower layer, and optimizations of R.J.A. Buhr's architecture (1984) which would have improved its performance efficiency.<>
