Dear Independent Submissions Editor,
I would like to ask you to consider publishing Binary Application Record
Encoding (BARE). If you have any questions, please feel free to contact
me or the CC mailing list. Below is the requested information from the

There has been no discussion in the IETF or IESG. However, there has
been considerable discussion in the technical community, including
implementers of BARE .

BARE I-D does not include a request to IANA.

The purpose of BARE is to encode application messages. The publication
aims to provide a standard that emphasizes concise messages, a
well-defined message scheme, broad compatibility with programming
environments, and ease of implementation.
The target audience is developers, including but not limited to
developers of Web applications, Internet services, Internet protocols,
or applications that store data.
BARE is well suited for encoding communication between programs, as it
aims for a well-defined schema, broad compatibility, and backward and
forward message compatibility. BARE emphasizes concise messages and
simplicity, and is therefore suitable for representing structured data
under strict message length constraints in a variety of contexts.

I strongly believe that anyone from the CBOR group can comment on BARE.
Have a nice day,
