    Also, isn't it astonishing how quickly some application area projects get
    their draft through the IESG process, considering that these guys weren't
    even chartered until mid-2000...

    Subject: [BXXPwg] Protocol Action: Mapping the BXXP Framework onto TCP
    to Proposed Standard

    The IESG has approved the following Internet-Drafts for publication as
    Proposed Standards:

    o The Blocks Extensible Exchange Protocol Framework

    o Mapping the BXXP Framework onto TCP

    These documents are the product of the Blocks Extensible Exchange
    Protocol Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Ned Freed and
    Patrik Faltstrom.

    Technical Summary
       BEEP provides a generic application protocol framework for
       connection-oriented, asynchronous interactions.

       At the core of the BEEP framework is a framing mechanism that
       permits simultaneous and independent exchanges of messages between
       peers. Messages are arbitrary MIME[1] content, but are usually
       textual (structured using XML[2]).

       All exchanges occur in the context of a channel -- a binding to a
       well-defined aspect of the application, such as transport security,
       user authentication, or data exchange.

       Each channel has an associated "profile" that defines the syntax and
       semantics of the messages exchanged. Implicit in the operation of
       BEEP is the notion of channel management. In addition to defining
       BEEP's channel management profile, this document defines:

       o the TLS[3] transport security profile; and,

       o the SASL[4] family of profiles.

       Other profiles, such as those used for data exchange, are defined by
       an application protocol designer.

    Working Group Summary

       The BEEP WG expanded on the BLOCKS protocol work done by Marshall Rose
       Carl Malamud. BLOCKS in turn drew on many existing IETF protocols and
       the design goals discussed at the APPLCORE BOF.

    Protocol Quality

       Ned Freed reviewed the BEEP specification for the IESG.

    Note to RFC Editor:

      In draft-ietf-beep-tcpmapping-06, please add the following paragraph
      just after the two bullet items in section 2:

            A simultaneous TCP OPEN would result in both BEEP peers believing
            they are the initiator and neither peer will be able to start any
            channels. Because of this, services based on BEEP must be designed
            so that simultaenous TCP OPENs cannot occur.
