It requires human expertise and knowledge of the application domain. To reduce unnecessary effort and to prevent reinventing the wheel, designers should be able to create new protocols by refining or combining existing protocols whose properties are well understood. In such a situation, a sound theory of composition of protocols and a classification of protocols in a hierarchy backed by formal semantics would aid protocol designers and take from them some of the burden of ascertaining the properties of the protocols being designed.
