Yes, that's definitely in my interest. I had a proof-of-concept running some
time ago, but was still far away of providing a sufficient and complete proposal
of the specification for the specs.

After we discussed MDI briefly on this list, we decided to delay this
subprotocol to a later version of the specs - in order to release a first
version as soon as possible.  I didn't continue working on the protocol after
that, but added emulated MDI to Qt (which is required anyway since not all
window managers will support the MDI protocol).

I suggest we work on the MDI issue for a later version of the specs. All we
need to ensure with the current specs is, that it's possible to add further
subprotocols later without breaking anything (extensibility :-).
