The only reason why no change hasn't been made yet is that it's not 
totally clear how the proposed text (which looks good) is to be 
integrated into the current draft (more precisely, what parts of 
<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-ietf-httpbis-p3-payload-08.html#rfc.section.4> 
it's meant to replace).

So the state is "pending", and it's blocked by the bandwidth by the editors.
