The way I remember it, this proposal was not accepted because
people wanted something more general-purpose, which was to
be developed by applecore group. But that group has gone
to sleep, so we should reconsider
into the standards track.

I have read through the proposal once again. The think I react
to (may be because I did not understand) is the requirement
to base new applications on HTTP/1.1. It should at least
be allowed for new applications to use a subset of HTTP/1.1,
and to specify which subset they are using.

The full HTTP/1.1 is much more than what many new applications,
built on top of HTTP, need.
