I've been prototyping an XML protocol engine based on the product of
the discussions at XTech
[http://www.w3.org/2000/03/02-XTech2000-protocol-BOF]. It uses SOAP's
section 8 [http://www.msdn.microsoft.com/xml/general/soapspec-v1.asp]
specifications for data serialization and some home-grown RPC
protocols defined with an extensibility mechanism
[http://www.w3.org/2000/03/15-XML-protocol-Viewpoints#proposedRequirements].

The XML protocol layer in supplemented with the HTTP protocol via a
CGI transfer adapter
[http://www.w3.org/2000/03/15-XML-protocol-Viewpoints#transportAdapter].

The goal is to implement and experiment with a protocol that can be
well defined with XML schemas [http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-0/] but
still transport the minimum amount of payload during normal operation.

I'm now experimenting with seeing how much of the payload is
redundant when used with an HTTP or SMTP transfer adapter.

I don't have much of a fun toy yet, but I'm checking things into CVS
at dev.w3.org:/sources/public
[http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/perl/modules/W3C/LOTP/]. I'll let y'all know
when I have something to play with. In the mean time, I just wanted to
send a heads-up so interested folks could provide input and join in if
interested.
