Most of the Gnutella style "peer-to-peer" networks are in reality a collection of
nodes that perform the roles of both a HTTP server and client.  The act as clients
when requesting downloads or searches from other machines, and as servers when
answering those requests.  For these systems, I think the existing flow
nomenclature is fine.
