 Not, at all. A peer can be either a parent, in which case it permits
to resolve misses(in other words, to use its "own" internet line) or a
sibling, in which case it's permitted to use only peer's cache. The ICP
is used(between Squid's) in both cases. Also, You cannot define a peer
to be used as a sibling if that peer does NOT support ICP(ie, is not a
Squid or Harvest, to my knowlege).
