    Hi Harry,

    It is a serious mistake to limit email to human-readable.
    Otherwise I agree with your MUST for email below.

    The IETF does NOT like intranet-only solutions in IETF
    standards (they usually simply remove them). And a MUST
    solution for the Internet proper that can't convey the full
    'application/ipp' semantics is going to fail approval by
    the IETF.

    If we are developing an Internet standard then we should
    get on with it and abide by the IETF's rules and philosopy.

    Cheers,

    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
    the
    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.
