SO far I have not heard any discussion on this issue.  I propose that the
definitions be accepted as they stand in the current document.

Subject: AM issue regarding XML protocol blocks targeting

In yesterday's telecon, we decided to resolve the recently raised issues
regarding the AM document quickly.  

The current AM document states in section 4: "XML protocol blocks are
aggregated into XML protocol messages and may be targeted at particular
handlers.  Targeted XML protocol blocks are delivered together with the rest
of the XML protocol message which encapsulates them first to the XML
protocol application that contains the targeted handler.  The XML protocol
application is then responsible for identifying and dispatching the targeted
XML protocol handlers."

Consistent with this, section 4.1 states: "Within the XML protocol there are
two entities that need to be addressed or targeted. XML protocol
applications and XML Protocol Handlers. It will be apparent from the
preceding discussion that within this abstract model XML protocol handlers
are deemed to reside within or operate as part of an XML protocol
application. This implies that the targeting of a particular XML protocol
block at a particular XML protocol handler, implicitly targets the XML
protocol message at the XML protocol application that contains the targeted

We need to resolve this quickly so I need some help in identifying the under
or over specified areas from the perspective of the AM.
