From a 10,000 m view, this looks either like the days of DOS where every application had its own TCP stack :), or a better take on microkernels. The kernel sets up the basic stuff for the machin, and the channels for the smaller daemons that then handle things like iptables, the stack etc. Each of these would be a herd of daemons interconnecting between each other.
