DR612 states: 
"The XP specification must provide a normative description of the default
binding of XP to the HTTP transport. 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 interoperate with existing HTTP
This requirement does not extend to the provision of normative bindings to
other important Internet protocols such as TCP/IP, UDP and SMTP in the XP
Furthermore, the XP specification must provide a normative description of a
binding of XP to a subset of HTTP that is compatible with pre-XP Internet
browser technology.
Discussion: The latter paragraph, regarding the subset of HTTP, needs use

We think this needs further discussion as the discusson section indicates.
