ACK, if I see that Mike is forced to ask other posters to avoid
subjects starting with 2..4 letters followed by a colon, then
I'm again sure that OE was one of the worst software products of
the 2nd millenium.
And the same MS dares propose internet drafts like Caller-ID,
it's worse than a nightmare, it must be real.

Where do you see this ? It's easy to "buy" the IETF, you only
need some fulltime professionals on a few mailing-lists ready
to block every simple idea, and a product (of course patented
and proprietary) dominating the market like many MS products,
and finally somebody documenting "common practice" as new RfC.
As simple as 1-2-3.
For a fascinating example of similar tactics see RfC 954bis:
At the moment we have RfC 954 which is in fact obsolete in
many aspects. But it's still the reason why _public_ whois
servers with accurate data about domains _should_ exist. If
RfC 954bis is adopted there's no more reason to publish data
for domains, <http://www.rfc-ignorant.org/policy-whois.php>
would not work anymore... :-(
