Good idea. Good compromise.

We're not inventing instant messaging, just putting it to another (good) use.
The cry for interoperatiliby is already at the forefront (and in the headlines).
Whether it comes via IMPP or industry waking up to customer requirements... it
shouldn't really take that long.

Harry,

We will run into trouble trying to reference protocol solutions which do not
yet exist as IETF standards from our IPP Notification documents in the IETF.

However, we could certainly send in an I-D on how to use emerging de facto
standards for IM as a complementary document and elevate it to the same
level as the other IPP Notification documents once the IM work has matured
in the IETF.

How is that as a compromise?

Carl-Uno
