I'm all for slamming ICANN, so maybe you could elaborate on your approach
a little more?

I'm not sure where you're going with this...and I don't think you're
asking the question you intend to ask. By "protocols" do you mean to
include services such as DNS, SMTP, etc?

Because, to answer your question directly, the list of protocols that all
carries support includes IP, TCP, UDP, and ICMP. Some might do IPv6, but
don't count on it. So how do you get to 10 or 20?
