Please take a look, leave comments preferably on the blog, but also
here would be fine.  

I think that's way overkill. If you attempt to include all protocols
into a classification system, you'll create more complexity and
potential confusion, making the system less useful. For starters, where
is exploit-pop3? (add your favorite protocol that's not on the list).

Class and subclass concept is fine. We've been using such a
classification in our system for while. However, breaking it out by type
and protocol does not appear to make much sense, at least to me.

I believe a simpler system that doesn't mushroom by the power of 2 would
be more effective and easier to use.
