Had to retrieve that one from tertiary storage! :-)

January 2008 was a while and about 80 gen-art reviews ago! ARRGH!!!
Quite a contentious one that.  RegExp raised a few hackles (I was quite
mild on that one I thought).

Perhaps we should try out RFC 5444 for the DTN BPbis (coming to an
incipient DTN WG maybe after Toronto).

I have to say that there are aspects of the existing RFC 5050 BP that
might be better expressed as ABNF (or a RegExp grammar).
