Sure, but there's typically only one protocol that's carried over any
of them.  Whereas with REST and XML-RPC and so forth, there's a whole
cottage industry of using HTTP as a carrier, in much the same way that
TCP is used at a lower level.

But you're right: there's "Networking / Generic Support", "Networking
/ Specific Protocols", and "Networking / HTTP-based", or some such.
