The dichotomy between the exposed and encapsulated approaches
to computer systems architectures is well known in contexts such as the
processor design (RISC vs. CISC) and layered network service stacks. In
this paper we examine how this basic choice of approaches arises in the
design of the Internet Backplane Protocol, a network storage service,
and as an issue in Grid architecture more generally.
