Subject: Protocol Version Negotiation

John Leiseboer added the following comment to the Proposal for Protocol Version Negotiation.docx document in the OASIS Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) TC Group.

TLS is a session-based protocol, therefore negotiated session parameters, including protocol version, makes sense. Does it make sense to support a protocol version negotiation for KMIP which is a connectionless protocol?

Wouldn't it be more useful, and consistent, if KMIP provided some means of querying for supported protocol versions rather than negotiating them? Rather than the server returning a single protocol version that it determines as suitable, wouldn't it be more sensible to return all versions that it supports? (It could return the supported versions as a list in preferred order.)
