(Check out the new http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/group/track/issues/57 ...)

Here is a DRAFT of a proposal for a plan (etc.) for AWWSW work related
to TAG ISSUE-57, based on recent discussions.

We will prepare two products.

1. A background report giving the AWWSW TF's best description of the
   issue, comprising
   - brief history
   - terminology and general analysis
   - issues reported (deployment difficulty and performance problems
       for httpRange-14 rule, mainly)
   - enumeration and analysis of all plausible solutions known to the TF
       ("plan B" solutions = {repeal of the rule + some way to refer
        to an IR at a URI} being one set, "plan A" alternatives to 303
   	such as .well-known being another set)
   - references

2. An illustration 'ontology' that would permit expression of both
   opt-in and opt-out to the httpRange-14 rule.  The deliverable would
   be two files, one of RDF and one of explanation and documentation.
   This would be presented as *for discussion* - not ready for prime time.

The purposes of the products would be to
* supply a basis for further community discussion of what to do
* help to recruit people to actively engage and to help out
* explain to the TAG what the problem is
* help the TAG decide how to further prosecute the issue (JAR suggested
  rec track through TAG; Larry Masinter has suggested dropping it and
  let the affected people run with it; that decision needs to be

At the end, we present them to the community (including the TAG), then
get back to what we were doing before.

This is not the whole AWWSW story; we also wanted to deal with
the rest of HTTP somehow - esp. 301/302/307, and maybe PUT.
