i think the most recent version of the LLSD draft can be found here:

http://tools.ietf.org/id/draft-ietf-vwrap-type-system-00.txt

i proposed a follow-on to LLSD (called DSD.) you can see an outline of
it's features here:

http://blog.meadhbh.org/2010/07/abstract-resource-definitions-vs-llidl.html

but... if no-one in this group plans on using it, i would like to
submit it as an individual submission to the RFC editor for the
purpose of registering it's mime types.

so... when you write your VWRAP implementation, are you going to use
LLSD or DSD. why? why not?
