 I wouldn't call it an "OpenPGP Object Format".  If you want to call
it a "Framing Method for Storing Multiple OpenPGP Messages in a Single
File", that it probably more accurate to the problem at hand.  This
would certainly parallel something like "OpenPGP in XMPP" (which I
mentioned in an earlier email).

I'm certainly willing to listen to the WG to see if others think
that we really need such a draft.
