      Hi All,

      David Ryan and Esmond Pitt have completed their proposal to the 6lowapp IETF working group for an application protocol for embedded devices.

      David has blogged about it here: http://blog.livemedia.com.au/2009/12/argot-submitted-to-ietf.html

      I figured this would be of interest to the readers and discussion here.

      Notable snippet from David's blog:

      The XPL system is a departure from how most application
      protocols are designed. Protocols are normally designed and then
      the implementation is created from the design. XPL binds the
      design and implementation together so that they are
      interrelated. This has interesting consequences for versioning
      and detailed discovery. A device can be interrogated to
      discovery the structure of all the data that can be
      sent/received to it. Combined with scripting languages and other
      methods it would allow clients to be built automatically with
      zero code. XPL is the first time that you can implant a formal
      protocol description in any device or application down to the
      smallest of devices.
