    All,

    I took an action item to find out if a Xerox resource was available to write
    up an alternative to CONNEG for content negotiation. The idea was to use a
    mechanism similar to "attribute coloring" based on document-format in a Get
    Printer Attributes request. I have been informed there is no resource
    available.

    There was quite a bit of opposition to using a method other than CONNEG for
    content negotiation. One reason was alignment with IFAX and IFAX content
    feature schema(rfc2879). Another reason was ITU, FAX and IESG acceptance of
    CONNEG. It was also noted that CONNEG is already specified and leveraging
    prior work for content negotiation would be a good thing.

    Pete
