    Ah, spoken like a true engineer... ;-)

    Let me ask the question another way, then:

        What kinds of IPP notifications are not WELL handled
        by simple plain text email messages?

    Please be as specific as you can, expressing the situation
    in real-world use cases (and not simply citing chapter-and-verse
    from the IPP spec).

    --------------------------------------------------------
    To everyone else on this list:

    Do my comments on this thread sound like plain ranting?
    Am I entirely off-base here, or what? Please speak up,
    as I grow increasingly weary of conducting these trials
    and tribulations with the same old Usual Suspects. ;-)

    And lest anyone misinterpret my position, let me say that
    I wish we could all have neat, cool, real-time binary stuff
    flowing between consumer and provider, regardless of the
    specific application. That would be a Good Thing, causing
    a wonderful User Experience.

    However, the many arrows in this engineer's back has caused
    him to become (dare I say?) a Realist with regard to the
    business case.

    Making a subsystem so gosh darn complex--just to have that
    capability--yet totally ignore the real-world business case
    is wholey inappropriate and irresponsible.

    My $0.02 worth, of course. Now let's hear from the Silent Majority, ok?
