Umm, perhaps I misunderstand, but in the CORBA world, GIOP is an "abstract"
protocol, of which IIOP is an instantiation which uses TCP as its transport
mechanism.  TAO has another version called UIOP which uses AF_LOCAL stream
sockets.  There is at least one other, for DECnet, I think, but nobody is
using it anymore.
