I made the following comment during the jabber session yesterday, when
it seemed we were moving further and further away from an agreement on
gconnor: ...I don't want this issue, which I consider "not really
the problem we are trying to solve" to tear the group apart
What I would really prefer to see is a few paragraphs that say:
1. What position you support
Postion 2: no XML
2. What other fallback or compromise positions you can live with, and
CSV+NBB+SPF records replacing HNA. ( ~= 40% solution)
Position 1: XML only
3. How strongly you feel about one or the other.
I feel strongly that we need to KISS. Hence 3&4 are even worse than 1,
all of which I oppose strongly.
We need to stick to DNS over UDP. Otherwise we will end up with a cure
that is worse than the disease. Others have detailed the resource and
If you respond supporting one extreme, and don't state a compromise
position that you can live with (either 3 or 4 or something else I
haven't spelled out), then you might want to add a footnote saying why
you believe this issue is enough of a dealbreaker that you are not
willing to compromise, and why you are willing to let MARID fail
rather than give in on the issue.
I'm not comfortable compromising because I have a real concern that with
1, MARID is more likely to fail.
