Subject: [ubl-ndrsc] [Fwd: "Guidelines for the Use of XML in IETF Protocols"]

It's interesting that this was written, but it turns out not to have 
very much to offer us...

    The eXtensible Markup Language (XML) is a framework for structuring
    data.  While it evolved from SGML -- a markup language primarily
    focused on structuring documents -- XML has evolved to be a widely-
    used mechanism for representing structured data.

    There are a wide variety of Internet protocols; many have need for a
    representation for structured data relevant to their application.
    There has been much interest in the use of XML as a representation
    method.  This document describes basic XML concepts, analyzes various
    alternatives in the use of XML, and provides guidelines for the use
    of XML within IETF standards-track protocols.

Intended Publication Status
    It is the goal of the authors that this draft (when completed and
    then approved by the IESG) be published as a Best Current Practice
