Not always. See Carl Malamud's excellent book* on why the overlayered
OSI Reference Model failed to get successful/popular/excellent(?) implementations 
while TCP/IP has taken over.  He attributed it to the over-layering of OSI,
causing too much double-handling and complexity.

like "the only good thing about visiting Adelaide is stopping in Sydney for
coffee at the Cafe Hernadez" which was the cafe I was sitting in at the time.
Clearly sympatico at some level.
