I didn't mean to imply that it was out of the discussion, as much as
we can/should begin seperating or being more clear about the areas of
discussion.  To me, serialization seems to be the easiest thing to
unbind from any of the extant protocols, and hence a good place to
start.  As another example, David's points would be great in a
messaging requirements doc.
