I agree, both for challenges and for credentials.

If some auth-scheme needs multiple base64 blobs it should use #auth-param
(i.e. key-value pairs, presumably with quoted-string values) to convey them.

I agree that NTLM, Negotiate, and even Nego2 need only a single base64 blob;
they do not need multiple base64 blobs.
