Fine, but why do you then go on and spend four paragraphs extolling the 
virtues of ONC RPC in general and XDR in particular over ASN.1, when no one 
has proposed doing anything involving the latter?

OTOH, I suppose someone should ask the question...  Do we believe that we 
will eventually end up with a schema for an LDAP-based admin protocol, and 
if so, will it end up replacing the current kadmin protocol?

If so, anything we do now is a stopgap.
If not, we should be thinking about the long term.
