Arnaud,

Yes - actually I agree.  If we have the option to create a primer document then that _would_ be a much better home for the examples. I think good examples are really important, and that people _are_ more likely to look for them in a primer than a use-case document.

A good place to make the cut would be to describe the HTTP interactions in UCR and leave it at that.

If you create a skeleton primer document I'd be happy to transplant the detailed examples out of the UCR. 

Thanks, Steve.

Out of necessity UCR has become a bit of a bucket for examples and issues while we're trying to figure out what is, and is not, consistent with the spec.

Concerning the issues discussed in UCR, I'd rather leave them in for now, but eventually these could be dropped as they become non-issues.

I really think it is very helpful to have all this but I'm starting to think that we may want to move some of the content to a different document, like a primer or something like that. It also seems to me that the scenarios provide a good basis for developing our test suite which we need to talk about that at the F2F. 

Absolutely.

Better late than never :)
