Thank you. We're currently discussing the frame format which we still
don't like much (it was more to propose something possible than to
propose something optimal), so don't waste your time trying to analyze
it :-)

You might also be interested by Roy's presentation of Waka too, which
came to the same conclusions us but many years before :-) He also went
slightly further by separating representation headers from transport
headers :

I hope he finds the time to write a draft, because it looks really
promising.

Willy
