IPP> Future IPP security mechanisms

Concerning our discussions about what IPP v1.1 (or later) will consist
of, I would like the group to re-address the idea of security and SASL.

To converge on a single port number for security, I think SASL provides
a very convenient method for doing this. With the publication of
RFC 2245 regarding an "anonymous" SASL profile, I think we can do a much
better job at umambiguously specifying how security is enabled or
disabled. I'm also trying to remove the burden on related SLP and LDAP
schemas regarding secure and non-secure URLs.

If we are willing to discuss this further, I would like to add it to
the agenda of either the Tucson or San Diego meetings.
