Salmon is certainly an "interesting" name for a protocol. (<http://www.salmon-protocol.org/>)
Though I think the biggest initial problem I have with reading about it is that since salmon does not have a distinct plural, it sometimes takes me a second to parse the sentences properly.
It does seem like an interesting idea at least!
