Randy,


Yes, let's just stick with ABNF.

See my earlier posting measurements we did of our prototype where
we encoded both ways 
"(binary length)name(binary length)value"
and then just
"name:valueCRLF"
Not a lot of difference in our timing measurements.  In fact it takes more
time to encode using binary lengths.


Doesn't seem worth it to me to skip a great legacy and ease extensibility
and
reduce risk of interoperability for almost no processing gain on a 
portion that is only very minimally involved in the overall end-to-end
processing
time required from application-to-paper.
