RFC-MNEM draft

1991-07-26 09:52:24
  I would like to see the sentence below deleted from RFC-MNEM as I
don't belive it to accurately represent the consensus of this WG, the
IETF, or the IAB.

"The format defined in this memo is the preferred format for
exchanging alphabetic messages."

  I do not prefer to read the "Mnemonic" encoding over say using
BASE64 and ISO-8859-X or ISO-10646. Traffic on this list doesn't
seem to have reached a clear consensus on any of the defined official
methods being preferred.  RFC-MNEM doesn't handle all languages that
use alphabetic encodings well (e.g. Vietnamese, there are others also),
though it works well for some.

  I'm not suggesting that it isn't useful in particular places, but I
don't think it is or should be claimed to be preferable in the general
case to the alternatives defined in RFC-XXXX, RFC-ZZZZ, and friends.
