Subject: Super Simple SEP Selection proposal

Although I wasn't able to write it up in time for the XRI TC telecon this
morning, I finished and posted the XRI 3.0 "Super Simple SEP Selection"
(SSSS) proposal before the XDI TC telecon this afternoon:


I first sent the link to the XDI TC list to get their feedback on the XDI TC
call (since most are also XRI TC members). Gabe wasn't on the call but he
happened to spot the link and his feedback is below. Indeed, I recall that
he was the original advocate for this dramatically simpler approach -- WHY

Given the hundreds of hours that have gone into specifying, implementing,
testing (and explaining ;-) XRI 2.0 SEP selection, this proposal seems
almost ludicrously simple.

But, as my old English teacher used to say, "Murder your darlings".

I'm cc'ing Eugene Kim, who inspired this radical rethink, to get his take,
as well as Victor Grey (who is still an XRI TC member) and Kermit Snelson,
as they spent many hours implementing/testing XRI 2.0 SEP selection in Barx.
Please do send in any feedback (for non-OASIS members, just send me email
and I'll forward to the list).
