Hi,

I just checked in a major rewrite of the user agent processing model that  
should make it much more clear what exactly needs to happen:

   http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/2006/waf/access-control/Overview.html?content-type=text/html;%20charset=utf-8

Outstanding issues:

  * What happens when the XML is not well-formed and how does this
    interact with incremental parsing.

  * Need to define request URL (scheme, domain, port) and where it
    comes from.

  * Update the match algorithm to deal with a request URL that
    contains a domain with a "." at the end.

  * Define XML MIME type.

  * Make it more clear that it's very important that user agents
    follow the algorithm exactly as given.

  * Fix the introduction and authoring requirements.

  * Include some examples for "deny".

  * Reply to some comments.

Hope to address the simpler ones tomorrow. Especially XML that's not  
well-formed is problematic.

Cheers,
