The end-to-end principle is the core architectural guideline of the
Internet.  In this document, we briefly examine the development of the
end-to-end principle as it has been applied to the Internet
architecture over the years.  We discuss current trends in the
evolution of the Internet architecture in relation to the end-to-end
principle, and try to draw some conclusion about the evolution of the
end-to-end principle, and thus for the Internet architecture which it
supports, in light of these current trends.
