I'm just trying to identify precisely what EOT-Lite is. There seems to be some confusion among its proponents. You've been telling us all we have to do to process EOT-lite is check and skip some header bytes, Ascender says we may have to XOR the payload as well.

"He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah 53:5-6]

While I have provided input, I am not specifying it and can only describe the proposal based on my understanding of the requirements from all concerned, my discussions with Ascender as well as compatibility with the IE installed base. The XOR’ing is optional and I’m unclear on why that’s necessary at all. I’m confident this is something we can work around if it’s a concern.
