In June 2010, there was a discussion about the web page at 
There were some comments from several of you.  The document is not 
meant to be a review guide.  I'll list the sections and the feedback:

- ABNF and BNF

   There wasn't any comment.

- Base64

   There wasn't any comment.

- Byte Order

   There wasn't any comment.

-  Dates and Times

   Martin mentioned http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/NOTE-timezone-20051013/

- Internationalization

   It was mentioned not to refer to RFC 2777.  There is BCP 47 about 
language tags.

- IDNs

   This comes up every now and then.

- Passwords

   The Precis work is not mentioned.

- Media Types

  I don't recall any discussion about that.

- Security

   Are people OK with RFC 6125?

- Versioning

  This is usually an issue.


   There wasn't any comment.

I understand that there aren't any easy answers to some of the 
above.  However, if we cannot provide pointers to authors, it makes 
their work more difficult.  Is there any interest in cleaning up that web page?

Best regards,
