I was previously unaware of the HFCI material in
<draft-rfced-info-mercer-00.txt> and would not have found it if you had not
raised it. Interestingly, I had both 12TD054 and the ID on my computer, but
have not read either :-{.

Does anyone know the context in which this document has arisen, including
the relevant IETF workgroup (if any) to which it has been submitted, or
mailing list (if any) on which this type of material is being discussed?
AFT looks like a prime candidate, but the ID is not listed on the web page.

In the meantime, I will give 12TD054.rtf and this ID a good read.
