OOPS... You sent this one to www-interest instead of www-talk...
I'm getting ready for some flamage from clueless list members :-)

Regarding your proposal, the idea is exciting, although I find it
annoying that small documents, like most HTML pages are, will suddenly
take 4 times as much storage and bandwidth due to verbosity. When
multimedia comes into play, of course, this is a non-issue. I do agree
that the current UDI syntax is too terse, though.

I'd like to develop on this, but I lack MIME background and, believe
it or not, I couldn't find the MIME RFC in the archive indexes ; could
you tell me (and the list) its number? Also, pointers to existing MIME
readers would be welcome.

More later...
