 A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
 directories. This draft is a work item of the Integrated Directory 
 Services Working Group of the IETF.

Application of the conventional X.500 approach to naming has, in the 
experience of the authors, proven to be an obstacle to the creation of 
directory services.  We propose a new directory naming plan that leverages 
the strengths of the most popular and successful Internet naming schemes 
for naming objects in a hierarchical directory.  This plan can, we believe,
facilitate the creation of an Internet White Pages Service (IWPS) by 
overcoming the problems encountered by those using the conventional 
recommended X.500 approach to naming.

Internet-Drafts are also available by mail.	
Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ids-dirnaming-00.txt".
NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader 
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
of the Internet-Draft.
