Regarding the original query. I don't think RFC 2975 is about
monkeys or flying monkeys even in Oz.
Perhaps what is meant by a protocol monkey is an algorithm that has a
way of intervening in a network protocol without the two endpoints
noticing. The reference is to the Panchatantra story about the monkey
and the two cats.
That's enough animal references for now.
