This revision looks "Yes"-able, but of course, I have questions ... but they're
mostly for the ART ADs.

I'm somewhat surprised that a revision of HTTP/1.1 is called out, but a similar
effort for HTTP/2 is not (and maybe more surprised because HTTP/3 extensions
are mentioned). I should just assume that if work on HTTP/2 turns out to be
necessary, the working group would be rechartered, maybe?

I see that https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-httpbis-bcp56bis/ is in
WGLC now, so maybe it's not worth mentioning, but I'm getting a sense that ART
and TSV are going to be having more conversations about the evolution of
transport that involve HTTP as an application substrate. TSVAREA gave over our
entire agenda at IETF 103 for topics in this space. It might be that the ART
ADs would not have those conversations in HTTPbis, or would be part of a later
recharter, but I did want to ask if they should be in charter for HTTPbis now,
since we're balloting on an update.

And a nit - if "The Working Group will refine the "core" HTTP document set (RFC
7230-RFC 7235)" actually means "revise" that document set, I'd suggest saying
