[more on how to fix SMTP, following up Michael Kay in response to me]

In my other life (or lives) this matters to me, but ...

is there anything that XML, as a technology, can contribute toward the
solution?  I don't think so, but I'm willing to be convinced.

if not, is there any particular reason for discussing the redesign of
TCP/IP and SMTP here?  There are places where discussion of such a
redesign may well be highly productive (IETF mailing lists, mostly,
although some may prefer more proprietary environments).  Here it seems
simply to contribute to email fatigue (xml-dev always goes through my spam

is there something in the discussion that ought to be applied to the
design of XML technologies?  This seems more likely (at least more
*possible*), but again, I haven't seen those suggestions either.

Not to be rude, but complaining about the problems of email and the
principles of the redesign of TCP/IP and SMTP to a few hundred people on a
mailing list devoted to an entirely other topic seems easy to label
(perhaps unjustly) part-of-the-problem.

Like *this* email, for instance.  *sigh*
