The main reason that it never made it to ID, is that there quite
clearly is no room in the timeplan for the kind of fundamental
contemplation I wanted to inspire, so it seemed a waste of both
my own and everybody elses time.

There's nothing secret about it, and I don't think there is anything
in it which havn't already been mentioned in emails too:


Please disregard any strangeness in the boilerplate, I may not
thrown all the right spells at xml2rfc, and also note that I have
subsequently changed my mind on certain subjects, most notably
Cookies which should simply be exterminated from HTTP/2.0, and
replaced with a stable session/identity concept which does not make
it possible or necessary for servers to store data on the clients.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
