Prior to the San Diego meeting, I proposed using ASN.1 as a way to
specify the protocol. This was
to prevent us from having to "re-invent" the wheel with regards to our
protocol specification. The nice
thing about ASN.1 (and its companion BER) is that extensibility is
easily achieved and with more
flexibility than what has been proposed so far. I think Larry Masinter
brought up the fact that ASN.1
might be a better approach, and if extensibility and clarity of
specification is what is driving these
recent discussions, then I'm curious why we are striving so hard to
reinvent another way to do this.
