I am forced to agree (sadly).  We all need a good kick in the pants on 
this one.  Sam has put together what I think is a fairly provocative 
requirements document (he provoked me to make a comment and a 
contribution or two ;-).  Given the lack luster response, I don't think 
even I can support my early desire to see the security considerations of 
HTTP dealt with, and the situation is truly abysmal.  And so I think we 
need to have two groups, and it's not even clear that we have enough 
support for the 2nd, right now.

I'm CC'ing Sam, by the way, who can perhaps more accurately respond to 
what comments he's gotten.
