Title : Web Address Translation (WAT)
Author(s) : S. Mantripragada

This draft specifies Web Address Translation (WAT) mechanism. The
scheme allows user to hide or rewrite the backend (and internal)
domain addresses. The scheme is based on a suite of URL translation
schemes without requiring any of the backend application servers to be
reconfigured This allows to host multiple applications on different
virtual servers via a single domain. The analogy is similar to NAT
except that the proposed implementation scheme operates at the web
application layer and brings the value of web address translation
mechanism up into the network than doing the functions only in the
web servers at the end point.

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
