the classic security community definition of denial of service includes
TCP RST and PMTU attacks. Neither exposes the content of a message or
corrupts the content of message - they merely interfere with reliability
You may want to subdivide "denial of service" into subcategories. But
ultimately, those attacks deny service. And that's my point.
There is nothing in the classification of security risks that says
"denial of service" is protocol-independent.
