      For your information, a slightly revised DIME spec and a first SOAP in
      DIME spec has been submitted to the IETF as Internet Drafts. The specs
      should show up in the normal IETF drafts folder [1] in the next few
      days. However, you can also get them right now at the links below:

      DIME (available at [3])

      Direct Internet Message Encapsulation (DIME) is a lightweight,
      binary message format that can be used to encapsulate one or more
      application-defined payloads of arbitrary type and size into a
      single message construct. Each payload is described by a type, a
      length, and an optional identifier. Both URIs and MIME media type
      constructs are supported as type identifiers. The payload length is

      an integer indicating the number of octets of the payload. The
      optional payload identifier is a URI enabling cross-referencing
      between payloads. DIME payloads may include nested DIME messages or

      chains of linked chunks of unknown length at the time the data is
      generated. DIME is strictly a message format: it provides no
      concept of a connection or of a logical circuit, nor does it
      address head-of-line problems.

      Encapsulating SOAP in DIME (available at [4])

      This document defines the rules for encapsulating SOAP messages
      within Direct Internet Message Encapsulation (DIME). DIME provides
      a lightweight mechanism for encapsulating compound documents that
      can be used to encapsulate a SOAP message and entities related to
      the SOAP message such as attachments.

      Discussion of these specs happen on the public DIME mailing list [2]
      (archives are at [5]). I BCC'ed xml-dist-app and soapbuilders as this
      might be of interest - I apologize for the cross-posting!

      Have fun - comments welcome!
