I particapted in the RFC 6265 process on the http-state list.

As the main author of curl and libcurl's cookie parser and logic, I completely 
sympathize and agree with what these drafts are set out to do and I will work 
on implementing them once we agree on the content.

I consider both of them to be clearly written and very good input for making a 
revised cookie spec. Not the least because they have a very small risk of 
actually damaging already deployed sites while adhering to them will improve 
future work.
