Currently, there are many proposals to redesign the Internet. While some design ingredients are common to several approaches, the way they are adopted and combined usually differs from proposal to proposal. This paper defends the argument that a deeper architectural rethinking requires a deeper search for synergies among the selected ingredients. It argues that this is fundamentally a possible path to simplify the design, since ingredients are homogenized towards more coherent blueprints. The paper explores raised synergies in a conceptual way and proposes some guidelines to help designing accordingly.
