Great! This is an improvement, but still not quite there. It's crucially  
missing the definition of the namevalues syntax, so section 5.1.1 just  
says "Parse the octet string yielding a list of name-value pairs". This  
doesn't actually say *how* to parse the octet-string into name-value  
pairs, so it is not enough. We can either refer to a syntax, or use  
something like the very verbose steps I had before.

I've rebased my changes onto the latest WD. I just made a few small  
commits of fixes I found last time I edited but haven't made it into the  
spec yet. What's left are the patches attached to this mail. The first I  
think should be applied to the spec and shouldn't be controversial, while  
the remaining three are cleanup.

In short, ISSUE-19 may not be closed just yet, but we're getting there.
