At worst, basic auth could be back in 2616, but fixing auth in general or 
even the issues with digest is way bigger than what planned in the 
proposed scope.

If two groups are created, there will be overlap in membership, but not 
in the work done, so I don't see a big issue here. I would be against 
doing a 2617bis to fix only typos, much more is needed.
