Hi there,

reminder: this draft has changed considerably since IETF Last Call. See 
the diffs over here:


And yes, that's a huge diff considering the size of the document.


1) s/Prefer header field/Prefer header filed/

2) I don't think it's a good idea to use currently unregistered media

3) In Section 1:

>    Another option available to clients is to utilize Request URI query-
>    string parameters to express preferences.  Doing so, however, results
>    in a variety of issues affecting the cacheability of responses.

Otherwise, the changes look good to me.

Best regards, Julian
