Please submit feedback to this from your implementation or deployment ASAP; without this information, I'll be forced to rely on my own impressions more heavily when judging consensus (which means less grounds for complaining if it doesn't go your way). 

Note that one of the options on the table for the protocol, by default, is to do nothing -- i.e., continue to develop HTTP/1.1 pipelining to address performance concerns (which quite a few implementations have been doing recently).

Likewise, no expressions of interest in implementing or using the proposed authentication schemes is hard to misinterpret.

Finally, I've added a new authentication scheme proposal, so if you've already started, please re-check the list on the CfI.
