The MIDI Wire Protocol Packetization (MWPP) is a general-purpose
RTP packetization for the MIDI command language. MWPP is suitable
for use in both interactive applications (such as the remote
operation of musical instruments) and content-delivery applications
(such as MIDI file streaming). MWPP is suitable for use over
unicast and multicast UDP, and defines tools that support the
graceful recovery from packet loss. MWPP may also be used over
reliable transport such as TCP. The SDP parameters defined for MWPP
support the customization of stream behavior (including the MIDI
rendering method) during session setup. MWPP is compatible with the
MPEG-4 generic RTP payload format, to support the MPEG 4 Audio
object types for General MIDI, DLS2, and Structured Audio.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
