Specifications should not have ambiguities (that is, cases where the
specification can be read in multiple ways but no one knows for sure
which reading is correct); presumably you mean ambiguities should be
removed, e.g. by explicitly making certain things implementation-de-
fined or by introducing new requirements if required for interop.

This sounds rather controversial.

I think the Working Group should be given the option to produce more
than one document to supercede RFC 2616; various suggestions what
could be factored out have been made here. The group might well decide
that keeping everything in one document is best, but it should not be
required to recharter if it decides otherwise.
