I think that these objectives for IBB are reasonable, and cover all the
possible use cases. As Matt Tucker has stated before, the file type meta
data would occur at a level above the stream itself, and should be
defined as such in a separate JEP to provide a standard method for
providing such meta data.
All in all, Diz has summarized the stream level issues well, and with
some stream leve lerror handling, I believe this JEP can go forward.
