Charles,

You are right that if we see this only from an IETF perspective,
we do not need to care about all the other transfer protocols.
However, it is of general interest to members of the PWG to also
look for solutions that go beyond the IETF scope.

I expect that when we write up a solution for extending the IPP
within the IETF to cover IPP notifications, such a proposal
will be limited to the TCP/IP case.
