Already reported seven moths ago here (+ later pointers)
in <http://article.gmane.org/gmane.org.w3c.uri/429/raw> :

| s/apply. [RFC3987]/[RFC3987] apply./

Other points in this old review are apparently also not yet
addressed by the new draft, e.g. <urlc> is used but undefined:

| >        hname       = *urlc
| >        hvalue      = *urlc

| RfC 2368 and your draft use "urlc" without proper syntax or
| explanation, please add something like this:

(snipping my old proposal, here's my latest unconfirmed guess:)
                                            ^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^
    urlc = %x21-3B / %x3D / %x3F-5B / %x5D / %x5F / %x61-7A

The draft is still far from ready, it doesn't answer any of my
open questions.  Bruce also posted a list here.  Bye, Frank
