IMO, this requirement should be split into 3 separate requirements,
612a, 612b and 612c.

Furthermore, 612a and 612c, taken together, could be seen to mean:
there will be one HTTP mapping (612a), and this mapping will be
compatible with pre-XP Internet browser technology (612c).

Finally, 612c is rather vague, as has been pointed out before on the
list.

DR612a
              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 applications.
DR612b
              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
              specification.
DR612c
              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.

Jean-Jacques.
