Hi there,

I got some great feedback from one of our chairs who checked how this 
impacts *his* work on RFC 5988bis (which refers to RFC 5987) -- see 
<https://github.com/httpwg/http-extensions/issues/267>.

One point he makes is that the fact that the parameter encoding doesn't 
have a proper name (other than "the encoding defined in...") makes it 
hard to talk about it in other specs.

So, given that we're after WGLC:

Would people object to naming this thing?

This would affect the abstract, the introduction, the title, and maybe 
some more places.

*If* the group is ok with this, would "IPE" (Internationalisation 
Parameter Encoding") be ok?

Best regards, Julian
