CORBA21 — Typecode encoding is too long

    Summary: Proposal: allow for alternate, compact encoding of typecodes
    It is clear that typecodes are quite long when encoded into CDR and
    transmitted over the wire. This is particularly painful when the CORBA::Any
    type is used in interfaces. Besides, the use of any is becoming increasingly
    important in multiple CORBA specifications, and a global solution to this
    problem should be provided.

    My proposal is to allow for an alternate encoding of typecodes, for those
    specific cases where type identification can be achieved either by other
    application specific mechanisms (for example, Name-Value pairs) or where
    the Repository Id of the type is enough to reconstruct the full typecode
    information locally on the receiving side.
