Sigh. I have identified some. See my discussion of sections 5.1 (last point made) and the last remark about section 9 in my original last call comments to the IESG. This is all fixable, I believe some of the edits you proposed afterwards fixed at least some of the section 9 stuff. You already fixed the second-to-last 5.1 point for me by pointing out how to get around it. I see a definite possibility of converging on this, don't worry. Then there is the 'Sec 5 para after enumerated list' thing about tunneling for unknown methods. You should really cross-check this with Jeff if you don't trust my claim that this is not in http/1.1. I have been known to be wrong but I don't think I am wrong about this one. Alternatively, point me to the appropriate line in the 1.1 spec. I am much more worried about us converging on my issues re. sec 5 point 3 and sec 5 point 4, and these have little to do with caching. > Henrik Koen.
