Should HTTP be used as a substrate protocol? Does W3C agree with RFC 3205?

State:
PENDING REVIEW
Product:
Raised by:

2002-03-24
Description:
Shepherd: Larry Masinter

Dan can't think of any specific reason to keep this open, though perhaps we should double-check at an upcoming TAG/W3C liaison meeting and/or ask in public-ietf-w3c@w3.org

community affected: IETF HTTP WG, SIP WG, etc.

"deferred on 12 May 2004

The TAG decided to defer this issue pending any attempt to enforce RFC3205."
http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/issues.html?type=1#HTTPSubstrate-16

From Mark Nottingham:
The IETF has recently published RFC3205, "On the use of HTTP as a Substrate" [1] as Best Current Practice.

This document makes a number of recommendations regarding the use of HTTP. Some are reasonable, such as guidelines about what kinds of scenarios the HTTP is most useful in, how to use media types and methods to extend the HTTP, etc. However, it also bases a number of recommendations on a fuzzily-defined concept of 'traditional use' of the HTTP. These directives may seriously limit the future potential of the Web, effectively freezing its capability to common practice in 2001."
