Thank you (and Henrik) about this. I didn't knew about the Vary header. I 
added this to the draft. Since there was no further feedback I changed the 
timezone string from POSIX to RFC3339 time-zone, as you suggested.

I've some more questions:

a) What is the proper procedure for working on this draft? Should this be 
submitted by the WG instead of me?
b) I've added you to the Acknowledgement section. Is this correct or should 
you be listed in the authors?
c) Should I try to send this somewhere else to get more feedback?

Thank you for your time,
Harhalakis Stefanos
