Elaborating...: even if we don't put "internet standard" on the charter 
we'll have to think about what do to with HTTPbis errata, plus the 
changes we may *want* to do in P1 to make it better work with a new wire 
format.

The simplest way to do that IMHO is to maintain new (minor) revisions of 
P1...P7 - we have the infrastructure (trac, tools, mailing list), and 
the right people (authors & reviewers).

As we did with HTTPbis we really don't need to know right now what 
standards level that output would get.

Best regards, Julian
