On that we are in complete agreement and in particular the binary encoding
part of the protocol.

If you add the types to the file, don't add the filename extensions.
An extension added to the wrong type will change the behavior of an
existing server in odd ways.  This is particularly the case for WAP,
which is one of the most brain-dead protocols on the planet.
