Message-Id: <8A112B10-6245-4013-BB50-086CAE94F8FA@mnot.net>
To: HTTP Working Group <ietf-http-wg@w3.org>
<http://trac.tools.ietf.org/wg/httpbis/trac/ticket/177>

Proposal: 

1) put the text on realms into a separate subsection (editorial suggestion), and

2) in p7, change:

>   The authentication parameter realm is defined for all authentication schemes:


to:

"""
The authentication parameter 'realm' is reserved for use by authentications schemes that wish to indicate the scope of protection:
""" 

3) drop this sentence:

> The realm directive (case-insensitive) is required for all authentication schemes that issue a challenge.
