  I like the proposed format.

  You suggest:

JG>  using a portable representation (such as ``comma separated values'').
JG>  The use of a spreadsheet would allow separate editing of the
JG>  requirements summary, followed by semi-automatic insertion into the
JG>  master copy of the HTTP/1.1 specification.  It might also allow
JG>  semi-automatic extraction of subset requirements application to
JG>  specific kinds of implementations.

  I really like that idea, though looking at the example comma would
  clearly be a poor choice of separator :-).
