Current text for DR 121
------------------------
              Additional Transport Services: Transport services are
extremely important in order to
              actually deliver packages in an efficient and scalable
manner. Many current XML
              messaging proposals use existing application layer
protocols such as SMTP, HTTP
              and BEEP. The XML Protocol Working Group will initially
focus on providing a
              (non-exclusive) mapping to HTTP. Other transports can be
addressed if the WG has
              sufficient resources and time, but are a low priority.

Proposed rewording
---------------------
The XML Protocol WG recognizes that a number of XML messaging
proposals use protocols other than HTTP, for example SMTP or BEEP.
Although the WG encourages individuals and organisations to develop
such bindings for XP, it will only provide a binding for HTTP
initially.

Jean-Jacques.
