Larry,


Building on your idea...


How about making your first part (vendor proprietary) be a mail attachment
in whatever media type the vendor wants or defines?


Make your second part be the text/plain body of the mail message 
and be human readable in any format (hopefully in the language of the 
user, but in a charset that the transport system can handle).


When the PWG agrees (soon after IPP V1.0) to a media type for notification
purposes, the Printer vendor can include that as an attachment as well.


If he had a proprietary media type, he can attach both as separate
attachments,
correct?


Then we have a good migration path as you urge, correct?


Tom
