The internet runs on TCP/IP. It has been like that since the last
century. The software I use does not implement the OSI model. It is
misguided to have the OSI model in a curriculum when the software
used is not based on that model. The input of the ITU for Internet
Protocol design is minimal at best. As for the IETF being part of
the ITU, I suggest verifying whether the person who said that can
read English for the Certificate of Primary Education correctly. :-)

I suggest reading I
sometimes use some of the concepts in that RFC in (internet)
architecture discussions.
