Indeed email is the only notification that is a true Internet protocol, but
it is intended for notification to a human rather than to machine.
For notification to a machine, Indp is great within the intranet, and
ipp-get works on the Internet. But ipp-get is really polling with some hints
from the Printer about when to poll again.
So each Delivery Method is flawed.

with Bill and Elliot and cast all my votes for e-mail.
