    I agree it might be more flexible and serve better in multiple protocols
    or environments if we avoid specifying one fixed form of concatenation. I
    think Mark's point, which I have heard him making for over a year, now, in
    UPDF and IPP meetings is that a client does need all this information in
    order for any of it to be effective. I think we should head this
    "warning".

    Mark, et al:

    I have no problem with creating the combined name but I think this is
    better
    done in the end standard that uses these names in a combined form. There
    may be
    reasons that UPD wants a certain set of characteristics in its media names
    that
    differ from what IPP might want, or uPnP might want, etc. If this
    standard
    tries to be all things to all users then it will never be done. One of
    the
    major issues raised by the IETF with IPP was it was just too big to deal
    with.
    It is thought to be better to create a number of smaller standards that
    deal
    with a smaller set of issues and then use those smaller standards as
    building
    blocks. I think this is a perfect example where smaller and simpler is
    better.

    Don: If you want to create a simple unusable standard than do it. Reality
    is that media description and selection only makes sense if you have all
    the information presented in a logical single description (including
    location).
