Hi dvk

I have a few questions about your first issue - hope that's okay?

In the current CC/PP protocol using HTTP-ex (or the WAP UAProf protocols)
profile-diffs should be able to convey dynamic changes above and beyond the
reference profile. Please can you give more details why profile-diffs are
not suitable in the situations you describe?

Can you give more details of these efficiency problems? Do you have any
proposals for solutions?

Alternatively do you think it would be possible to use a different protocol
in your use case as outlined in

thanks in advance, best regards
