Encoding considerations : 
DAF files may contain long lines or binary data such as images and
should be encoded using Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary.

Security considerations : 
DAF files may contain imbedded files of other types, such as Microsoft
Word, Microsoft Excel, among others, and Mobius products that use DAFs
may be configured to open external viewers for these files.  Hence, if
external viewers are enabled, then security considerations are those
associated with those file types.

platform independence, it protects your enterprise data against costly
hardware and format incompatibility.
