Re: [xml-dev] 2007 Predictions

Hi Tei,

Just wondering why you think HTTP should be deprecated.

I would have thought the vast amount of HTTP traffic does not benefit from 
security, so why require it if it's not needed?

My gut feeling is that using HTTP over TLS for all requests would 
dramatically increase server load.  Does anybody have more empirical data 
for this?

Re: IPv4 vs. IPv6: It seems that a lot of IETF protocol design now 
grudgingly acknowledges the presence of NATs.  There may now even be less 
pressure to deploy IPv6 than there was earlier!!!!  (If the question had 
been what the IETF should do I would say they should do IPv7 which would 
basically be IPv4 with a shim above the IP layer to capture NAT state so 
that NATs could be state-less and addressing could be end-to-end.  Alas that 
wasn't the question!)
