[XHR] RfC for Guidelines for Web Content Transformation Proxies; deadline 11 March

Anne, All,

WebApps has been asked to review LCWD #3 of:

  Guidelines for Web Content Transformation Proxies 1.0

In particular, Francois notes for the following for WebApps "the  
document applies to proxies that may receive requests initiated by  
XmlHTTPRequest objects". The XHR references appear to be isolated in  
section 4.1.2 and 4.1.3:

  4.1.2 no-transform directive in Request

  4.1.3 Treatment of Requesters that are not Web browsers

If you have any comments, please send them to public-bpwg- 
comments@w3.org by March 11 at the latest.

> Transformation Proxies published
> Hello TAG, HTML WG, XHTML2 WG, WebApps WG, HCG, Web Security  
> Context WG
> Chairs,
> This is a transition announcement for the third Last Call Working  
> Draft
> of the Guidelines for Web Content Transformation Proxies, published
> today at:
>   http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-ct-guidelines-20100211/
> This set of guidelines for Web Content Transformation proxies (i.e.  
> non
> transparent HTTP proxies) was developed by the W3C Mobile Web Best
> Practices Working Group to address some of the needs identified in
> particular on mobile networks, in accordance with the working group's
> charter [1].
> A second Last Call working draft was published a few months ago,  
> and you
> had been invited to review the specification back then. The Working
> Group received a few comments that triggered substantive changes in  
> the
> document. The group addressed the comments and decided to publish a
> third Last Call [2]. Status ref. patent policy is available at [3].
> This new Last Call review period extends until 11 March 2010.
> Although the sections mentioned below have not changed since the
> previous publication, we would be grateful if your group could review
> the document once more. in particular:
>   * for the TAG, since the document still relates to its issue
> genericResources-53 and its accompanying finding:
>   http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/doc/alternatives-discovery
>   * for the HTML and XHTML2 Working Groups, since the document  
> makes use
> of the (X)HTML link element to give hints on content transformation
> proxies (no change in this version though)
>   * for the WebApps Working Group, since the document applies to  
> proxies
> that may receive requests initiated by XmlHTTPRequest objects.
>   * for the HyperText CG, as the official point of liaison with the  
> Open
> Mobile Alliance which might want to submit a review on the document
> given its implications on the mobile ecosystem.
>   * for the Web Security Context WG, for the section on HTTPS link
> rewriting (no change in this version though)
> (The Working Group is also requesting a review from the IETF HTTPBis
> Working Group).
> If your group wants to submit a review but is unable to provide it in
> that timeframe, please let us know so that we can determine a possible
> extension of the review period.
> The working group has just sent official replies to the commenters of
> the second Last Call. At this point of time, there are no formal  
> objections.
> Thanks,
> Francois Daoust,
