This draft made a bit of surprise appearance in the transport area
meeting today:

http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ford-http-multi-server

My initial reaction is lots of obvious overlap with other work and
misunderstandings of basic HTTP functions like ETag.

Basic motivation behind the work may be reasonable however.

I will try to catch the author for a more in-depth discussion shortly.

Other opinions?

Regards
Henrik
