Re: Artart last call review of draft-ietf-httpbis-binary-message-04

Hi James,

Thanks for the review.

I tried to move the definition of "invalid message" up, but I think that having it in the table of contents is useful enough that having it after Section 3 is necessary.  I get that the repeated references are a little annoying, but once you jump forward, I hope that the content of Section 4 is narrow enough to internalize.

Moving the normative text from Section 6 makes a lot of sense.

I made some other editorial changes as a result of trying to shuffle Section 4 around.  You can see the changes here:
or spelled out (including the changes David suggested)
