This paper describes a rough hierarchy for an on-demand protocol design based on several concepts we believe would clarify the overwhelming complexity of multimedia application. These concepts include `semantic' control and `syntax' control, simple medium and structured medium, protocol switching, etc. A certain operation that may be performed on a medium is defined in terms of medium characteristics and dictated by semantic control. Where medium characteristics are ciphered in syntax control information. According to the complexity of these characteristics a hierarchy can be set up and protocol designs can be clearly classified, so that the concepts mentioned above are involved. Therefore, we can design protocols step by step, from basic ones to specific ones, and easily decide what functions should be realized in which set of protocols.
