+1 to all these changes and thanks to all for moving this forward. Yves, do you want to edit that in the spec and send another "implementors, please have a look" mail?

So we should probably have add a step in the spec, just before the current step 4 (Return the resulting string), that instruct to remove duplicates there, as the first case should be also handled by the second one.

Sounds fine to me.

And about the quotes, the more I think about it the more it seems that having a step to trim them, even if the HTML5 spec don't mention them is probably better. I can't imagine someone wanting to have a real domain value that is bracketed by quotes.
