    My view is that the mailto notification is bound to human readable. The
    mailto method is bound to a standard application that presents notification
    content to a human for interpretation and consumption. INDP may contain
    octets that a human can decipher. The consumer of the content is an
    application and the application is responsible for interpreting the content.

    I resist binding mailto to Internet and INDP to intranet. I see no reason
    that INDP would not be used on the Internet. It should be a site specific
    policy decision to allow INDP or IPP through a firewall.

    As I stated before I favor a notification being sent out at INDP
    registration. That allows a notification recipient to determine if the
    infrastructure supports INDP notification.

    I feel a more accurate way of looking at it is:

    1. If a device is configured to provide event notification across the
    Internet it MUST support mailto
    2. If a device is configured to provide event notification in the context
    of an Intranet it SHOULD support INDP

    We could live with the proposal to bind human/mail vs. machine/indp.
    However, this ignores the fact that INDP also handles human readable.

    Following the SF meeting I would like to formally propose the following.

    1. If a device wants to expose human readable events then it MUST support
    mailto method

    2. If a device wants to expose machine readable events then it MUST
    support the
    INDP method

    But we do not UNCONDITIONALLY require either.
