    Ned Freed communicated in an earrlier message to the IPP WG, that the IESG
    found it unacceptable that we had not choosen ONE mandatory delivery method
    for notofications. They would also like to see that delivery method mandate
    the use of security.

    As those of you who were around about two years ago remember, we could not
    reach agreement about mandating any of the delivery methods.

    However, in the meantime the members of the IPPFAX project in the Printer
    Working Group has reached an agfreement that they will require all IPPFAX
    implementions to implement the 'ippget' delivery method, and also rquire
    support for TLS security.

    Hence, I would like to put up the following strawman proposal to the IPP WG
    members to satisfy the IESG comments:

    1) Change the main Notifiction document to require that 'ippget' delivery
    MUST be included for all notification implementations, but any of the other
    two methods can also be implemented as an option.

    2) Put that rule also into the three delivery method documents, so it is
    crystal clear what the rule is.

    3) Further, in the 'ippget' delivery document, we specify that TLS security
    MUST be supported.

    If we can reach agreement on this, I will instruct the IPP editor to
    umplement these changes.

    I would like to get your reactions back on this proposal no later than April
    15, 2002.
