    Thanks for pointing that out. Of course INDP will require serious
    client-side support. However, it is thoroughly believed by one and
    all (right?) that real-time notifications are highly desirable within
    an intranet environment. Hence, the benefits ought to outweigh the
    costs. In other words, most PWG folks believe there are indeed
    compelling scenarios to justify real-time notifications, and hence,
    INDP support on the client.

    It's the fact that no such wide-reaching, compelling reasons exist outside
    the firewall that make real-time notifications--and hence, machine-readable
    code embedded in email messages--practical given the infrastructure costs.

    Thanks for pointing out the differences.
