Hi,

I just submitted a new version of my I-D that attempts to clarify the 
use of RFC2231-style encoding in HTTP header parameters.

The main changes are:

- now supposed to be stand-alone (RFC 2231 only informative) so it can 
progress independently

- use RFC 5234 style ABNF

Feedback appreciated,

Julian
