Cullen Jennings notes (msg03072e):

Section 1.2

We have two very different types of proxies - one only speaks COAP and the other type translates between CoAP and HTTP. I would prefer a different terms for the translating type. Perhaps "translator" or "translator proxy". I understand people don't want to use gateway but it is what many people would call a gateway.

-> Agree on terminology and go through the 113 occurrences of "proxy"

I would propose "translating proxy"

from core-http-mapping-04:

  1. Terminology

A device providing cross-protocol HTTP-CoAP mapping is called an
HTTP-CoAP cross-protocol proxy (HC proxy).

In the June 4th interim meeting we settled on "Cross Proxy".

Section 10 now (coap-10) has a single instance pf "cross-protocol proxying" (plus one in the heading).
Hence, the abbreviation is not introduced. Fine?

Fixed with a significant overhaul of the proxy terminology in coap-12.
