sadly I dont think this topic is open for discussion anymore - I am sure we
could have a wonderfully productive debate on it it :-)

We probably will have one anyway :-(

Hi Carl,

YES - it's a lousy idea to run IPP over HTTP - it's
caused a number of discovered problems and more still
lurking.

If we had no HTTP substrate, the notifications over
the Internet would be much cleaner (and more likely
to get the firewall vendors to build stuff to support
such a mode).

Cheers,
- Ira

Many of the benefits disappear, too, e.g., third-party notifications,
short-lived connections....
Also, you've now left the realm of the HTTP infrastructure.

(Hmm... maybe it's a bad idea to run IPP over HTTP.... Oh!  Sorry!  Sorry!
Doh!)
