I said it's a protocol (it is, actually) to build application tunnels 
(call it application proxy if you want, but SOCKS is a protocol, with 
its own specifications.

Right, but it's a protocol for an application level proxy. It
isn't a 'tunneling' protocol. Besides a proxy, the only other name
that could be used with it is a gateway. 

Check out these RFC for more information.
