The Electronic Data Interchange - Internet Integration (EDIINT) AS1,
AS2, and AS3 messages were designed specifically for the transport of
EDI documents.  Since multiple interchanges could be placed within a
single EDI document, there was not a need for sending multiple EDI
documents in a single message.  As adoption of EDIINT grew, other
uses developed aside from single EDI document transport.  Some
transactions required multiple attachments to be interpreted together
and stored in a single message.  This Informational RFC describes how
multiple documents, including non-EDI payloads, can be attached and
transmitted in a single EDIINT transport message.  The attachments
are stored within the MIME multipart/related structure.  A minimal
list of content-types to be supported as attachments is provided.
