I liked your article. I do think that for the deeply embedded sensor space additional protocols are required. For example, CoAP is the protocol which ARM is pushing in this space while ZeroMQ is one of the protocols used to collect sensor data at CERN. Memory footprint is very important for smaller systems and these additional protocols do a better job of this.
