The "parsing approach" is really what's currently in sections "Processing  
name-value components" and "Processing name-value lists", but most in this  
working group seem to be (strongly) opposed to making that normative.  
That's why I tried to simplified things quite a bit this time. This time  
there's no actual parsing expressed as algorithms, as one can just reuse  
the syntax when it's split into two layers.
