            Bug ID: 27341
           Summary: consider replacing integrity-metatata ABNF production
                    with a precise prose definition of the
                    datatype/microsyntax

            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Subresource Integrity

https://w3c.github.io/webappsec/specs/subresourceintegrity/#the-integrity-attribute-2

Please consider changing the definition of the datatype/microsyntax of the
"integrity" attribute to read as follows:

  The value of the attribute must be a _set of space-separated tokens_[HTML],
each of
  which must be a Named Information (ni) URI as defined in the "Named
Information
  (ni) URI Format" section of [RFC6920].

...where _set of space-separated tokens_ is a hyperlink to
https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/infrastructure.html#space-separated-tokens

Rationale: These days in the HTML spec and most other specs that specify
datatypes/ microsyntaxes for attribute values, the convention that's followed
it to just write the definition in prose, using prose primitives (defined in
the HTML spec) such as "set of space-separated tokens" rather than ABNF
productions or other formalisms.
