Many a year ago, there was a fairly strenuous effort to try to allow
people to send each other, in email, forms to fill out. I get forms
all the time via email: registration forms, application forms, etc.

The result of filling out a form is to mail the form back to another
address, after filling it out.

What I'm wondering is whether HTML forms could be used for this, which
is an application totally independent of HTTP, or, for that matter,
most of the rest of the web.

It would be very dandy if it were.
