Re: CfC: to publish First Public Working Draft of Uniform Messaging Policy spec; deadline January 19

I support this.

For the record: I have admittedly not been following the recent
discussions, but some of it has worried me a bit. I liked how UMP was
originally a subset of CORS, in that it gave some amount of
compatibility between the two models. In particular the ability for a
UMP client to talk to a CORS server seems like a win for both specs. I
also believe it makes switching between the two models slightly
easier, which again I think is a win for all involved parties.

If that is no longer the case, I hope that we'll end up back there.

In any case, whatever the state is I support the publication of this
FPWD. And please do keep technical discussions in the existing threads
(and new ones of course). I just wanted to raise some technical
concerns so that no one misunderstood what my support for the FPWD
