This piece of text could be rolled in as an introduction to 612:

"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.

The XP specification must provide a normative description of the default
binding of XP to HTTP. This binding, while normative, is not to be
exclusive. Any protocol binding to HTTP must respect the semantics of HTTP
and should demonstrate that it can co-exist with existing HTTP/1.0 and
HTTP/1.1 applications."
