Ed: agreed - but my point is that you should be saying that to Gorry 
Fairhurst, not to me. Do you think that we are the only people in the world 
who would like to see efficient use of space links? The choice to use IP or 
not will depend on mission requirements, but maybe there are some folks out 
there in DVB-S land who would like to use IP but who would equally well 
like to see a "Mega-lite" encapsulation mechanism. We ought to at least 
explore the possibility before we go off and build our own.

By the way, does anyone know if the commercial guys like Avtec, who build 
CCSDS link equipment, have been invited to join this proposed BOF? Before 
we bugger around with the space link protocols, we should be consulting the 
people who have invested serious money in the current infrastucture.
