Hi Lionel,

Out of curiosity, do you know about implementations or deployment of RFC 3310 in the context of HTTP? I know it is used in a special way in SIP ("IMS") authentication in a few deployments.

Would the intent be just a promotion from Informational to Standards Track, which would not require any specific technical work as such?
