This document describes a convention by which Delay-Tolerant
Networking (DTN) Bundle Protocol (BP) "convergence-layer" adapters
may represent endpoint identifiers in a compressed form within the
primary blocks of bundles, provided those endpoint identifiers
conform to the structure prescribed by this convention.

Compressed Bundle Header Encoding (CBHE) compression is a
convergence-layer adaptation.  It is opaque to bundle processing.
Therefore, it has no impact on the interoperability of different
Bundle Protocol implementations, but instead affects only the
interoperability of different convergence-layer adaptation
