The IETF BEEP working group shall develop a standards-track application protocol framework for connection-oriented, asynchronous request/response interactions. The framework must permit multiplexing of independent request/response streams over a single transport conneciton, supporting both textual and binary messages. The working group will use BXXP (as described in draft-mrose-bxxp-framework and draft-mrose-bxxp-tcpmapping) as its starting point. Although not encouraged, non-backwards-compatible changes to BXXP will be acceptable if the working group determines that the changes are required to meet the group's technical objectives and the group clearly documents the reasons for making them.
