Re: Finishing the XML-tagging discussion



now you're moving from the realm of specifying 'features' or
'default handling' of the object into specifying layered encodings.
and this was something that we were very unwilling to do when
we defined MIME.  The feeling was that having an arbitrary
number of cascaded encodings was likely to be detrimental to 
interoperability.
