 Is there any relation between XMTP and:


 Both use the field/header names as element names, which
seems like it would be a little awkward. For example, in HTTP
you'd have:


 but, more or less:


 Am I reading correctly? For my purposes, I suspect it
would be cleaner to represent all the headers with:

       message-header = field-name ":" [ field-value ]

 (ref also Eric van der Vlist's message in the "HTTP
messages as XML" thread)

 For structured headers, you could allow the value element
to contain the structure, but that doesn't follow the
EBNF very closely...
