A new version of I-D, draft-ubillos-name-based-api-00.txt has been successfully submitted by Javier Ubillos and posted to the IETF repository.

Filename:	 draft-ubillos-name-based-api
Revision:	 00
Title:		 Name Based API
Creation_date:	 2010-12-01
WG ID:		 Independent Submission
Number_of_pages: 6

Today, networked applications typically make use of name-oriented
network abstractions.  There is a myriad of application development
frameworks who provide abstracted APIs allowing applications to refer
to their peers by name.  These abstractions normally only provide
application-layer protocol functionality.  They are normally uni-
lateral solutions, the support for the protocol used is implied by
the service accessed on the remote peer(s).

We suggest a unified API for networked applications.  Isomorphic to
the existing name-based solutions, but with added network-related
functionality.  Providing an existing application-layer protocols
with network features such as mobility, multi-homing, IPv4/IPv6
interoperability, NAT-traversal and so on...
