I'm not sure how much we should care about higher level abstractions for this
discussion. We should do what's right for IB. Abstractions that want to use IP
addresses can either use the standard protocol defined by the IBTA or define
their own private data.

from TCP port numbers to IB service records, or change the CM version to read
into the private data. What's wrong with this approach?
