SemWeb Co-ordination Group advice on IETF and HTTP Headers in GRDDL

Today the Semantic Web Co-ordination Group met and we discussed the
relationship between the IETF and GRDDL, in particular the HTTP Header case.

After discussion, I was informed that it would be possible to take GRDDL
to Last Call with the use of Link and Profile HTTP headers with GRDDL as
a "Feature at Risk." However, we cannot continue to PR with a "feature
at risk." In order not to get off schedule, we will continue to maintain
the use of Link and Profile headers in our documents (Use Case and Spec,
as well as test-case) until the end of March, in which case we are on
schedule to go to PR. If the IESG approves Mark Nottingham's draft
before the end of March, we can include the HTTP header in our normative
documents. Otherwise, we should remove the feature.

People in the SemWeb Co-ordination Group believe it is not improbable
that Mark Nottingham's draft will be approved by the IESG before the end
of March. Cross your fingers, and e-mail Mark and ietf-http-wg@w3.org
suggesting how important it is that the W3C communicate to the IETF that
it is important that this draft be approved, if possible, by the IESG.

If Mark requires help, please inform the list-serv.
