So I haven't talked to Mark about this (so I'm not even in his un-listed
list above), but my recollection matches his. I distinctly remember walking
out of the room with a sense that we had come to a good place, where
basically every intended use case (plaintext http://, https://, and
http://-over-TLS)
was going to be documented as part of the spec. The question of whether or
not some things would be in a (normatively-referenced) separate document or
not was still a little up in the air, but I was definitely under the
impression that there would be normative references involved if
http://-over-TLS
wasn't placed directly in the main spec. My general feeling on that was
that we had agreed to put the ALTSVC frame, and mechanism for http://-over-TLS
in the main spec, with the new Alt-Svc header for HTTP/1.1 in a separate
document.
