I am very unenthusiatic about ASN.1 because of its overhead.  In the
model group we have purposefully used keywords that are a string of
characters so that we could have a simple protocol that avoids OIDs and
ASN.1.


I would prefer that we stay with text and use the syntax rules from
rfc 2068, even for the IPP protocol, whatever it turns out to be.
