Considering the scope of 2616bis is errata, and explicitly not new  
features/mechanisms, I'm not sure I follow. Do you think that  
designing new auth mechanisms will expose new errata?

My initial thought is that it's much more likely that it'll require  
who new features, or no changes to HTTP at all.
