A protocol is simply an agreement. So not only are TCP and HTTP protocols, but data formats (XML, HTML, ...) are too. At least that's the defacto definition used in the Internet community. I agree that the RPC-inspired visions of the world (CORBA, DCOM, Web services) opt for a much more restrictive definition though.
