The referenced protocol draft uses the CID scheme
that was one option used in Soap With Attachments.  This
scheme is very "mail-like", being based on nominally
global-unique message ids.  Personally I think that
the more effective packaging method will turn out to
be the relative URI approach based on Content-location.
This scheme is web-like.  It decouples content from
transport.  This is an important issue for content
designers, if not for transport designers.
