Re: [Sip] RE: [Geopriv] Consensus on changes to location-conveyance

On a general note and generalizing a bit on Nadine's message below, I
find the nanny tone of this discussion a bit peculiar ("No, I don't
want you to play with that!"). I can see the technical rationale for
requiring implementation of a limited set of choices for
interoperability, but proactively ruling out other choices seems
highly unusual for an IETF protocol spec. It is clear that only a
relatively small number of people are participating in this
discussion, so declaring consensus to rule out one URL scheme or
another as 'evil bits' seems a bit peculiar.
