If the point is that:
   This is not a case of either or, but both.

then, I agree.

In which case if there is meaningful room for
layering, then great! But, I don't suspect much.

In any case, here is a pointer to a C fsm
interface, documentation and examples that I built
and used (in RFC-2188, RFC-2524, ...) 15 years ago.


I am in no way suggesting its inclusion.

But the documentation is relatively good and may
be worth reusing.
