Writing an internet draft to document the problems surrounding
internationalization in the current draft has been suggested as
a conclusion to other discussions. At present, I count 6 issues,
of course not all of them with equal degree of consensus.

I would be willing to write them together as an internet-draft;
anybody willing to help??? Anybody afraid of me writing this
draft, because I have my own oppinion on certain issues?
I would prefer to limit the discussion to http-wg, because this
is most directly concerned, and I don't want to get the same
mail more than two times. A preliminary title would be
draft-ietf-http-i18n-issues-00.txt. Does anybody have any
better idea?
