I haven't seen much response to this, except a +1 from Julian.

So, the proposed resolution is: to keep Transfer-Codings and Content-Codings at IETF Review, and return Upgrade Tokens First-Come-First-Served.

Any further comments? If not, we'll close and incorporate.

These are very low-throughput registries, and will benefit from IETF review (as there's a cost to adding new schemes to negotiation).
