Hi Amos,

The changelog is removed before the RFC is published, so I think we're OK there.

WRT the text, I think we can fix that by adding an equivalent proviso to proxy-auth-info, e.g.,:

The Proxy-Authentication-Info response header field is equivalent to Authentication-Info, except that its semantics are defined by the authentication scheme indicated by the Proxy-Authorization header field of the corresponding request, and applies to proxy authentication.

We can do that as part of LC processing (we just wanted to get this change in before that because of the change IPR declaration).
