OK. In the interests of a reasonable discussion...
I agree that no compelling reason for machine readable in the mail-to has
been presented. I also note your comment that
" I'll bet big money that the COSTS substantially outweigh
the BENEFITS. Remember, you're talking some serious client-side
installations to make this work as you describe".
But then, aside from Novell's application and that fact that it is "cool"
(which I think it is), I have not seen a compelling reason presented for
machine readable information in any of the other notification delivery
methods including INDP (or indeed, for INDP with human readable either) and
I suggest that comment about "serious client-side
installations to make this work" applies even more to INDP. If we are going
to use your objective criteria, we should apply it consistently.
