My personal opinion is that we have given the MIME people a lot of time to
work on this issue. They have not gotten anyplace that I am aware of so I
think that we need to do it. If we end up with two ways of doing this then
the S/MIME draft could always say what is to be used for that application.

Does anyone have any further thoughts on compression as a CMS content type
vs a MIME type? I think this was more or less beaten to death (and
beyond :-) the last time it came up, but if anyone has any further thoughts
please post them.

day or two).
