Artart telechat review of draft-ietf-httpbis-message-signatures-17

Reviewer: Harald Alvestrand
Review result: Ready with Issues

The most important things I pointed out in my previous review have been at
least mentioned in the new draft - the need to look at complete ecosystems (new
paragraph in the introduction), better description of re-signing (section 4)
and the use of a server as a signature generator (7.3.7).

The discussion following the review also indicated a strong community interest
in deploying this technology.

If my misgivings about the approach (which I still have) are wrong, this is a
good standards track document. If my misgivings are correct, this will show
itself in deployment.

I don't think we should block this going on the standards track in its present
