Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Your model would certainly qualify as that. Although I'm not convinced that it's necessarily the optimal model for things like water and railroads (and to some degree electricity) which are by their very nature large, integrated systems that must be micromanaged to a considerable extent by a central hub.

Ummm...good point, but a strong management core need not necessarily mean hierarchy,just a much more significant node on the network.
