	On the AFTF call just completed I was asked to draft proposed working for 
	new requirements relating to metadata.  Here's a cut:

	DRx:  The specification should provide convenient means for extending the 
	metadata carried with a message.  Such mechanisms should specifically 
	allow for extensions to the set of metadata associated with individual 
	parts.

	DRy:  The specification should provide a means by which any or all parts 
	MAY be labeled with associated MIME types.  (I.e. applications sending a 
	message are not obligated to label parts with MIME types, but the 
	specification must provide for carrying the MIME type if provided.)

	How's that?
