Hi,

<julian>
is this mandatory or optional?
</julian>

as you stated, the best spec is the one without optional features. However,
my feeling is to set it optional.

<julian>
are people aware that path segments will always be URL-encoded, so 
that in order to match an "A umlaut", you'll have to insert a sequence 
of percent-escaped bytes? (and that in this case, caseless matching will 
probably not work as expected)?
</julian>

answer will follow in a separate mail...

Martin

Martin,

I think that this will work.

Open issues:

- is this mandatory or optional?

- are people aware that path segments will always be URL-encoded, so 
that in order to match an "A umlaut", you'll have to insert a sequence 
of percent-escaped bytes? (and that in this case, caseless matching will 
probably not work as expected)?

Regards, Julian
