Greetings. With more resolvers implementing QNAME minimisation, and
even turning it on by default, we thought that this is a good time to
update RFC 7816 and make it a standard. In order to get things moving,
we have published a very early draft draft-bortzmeyer-rfc7816bis-00
that is mostly the original RFC but with a few questions and holes
added (see the text near the strings "TODO"). If folks in the WG is
interested, feel free to comment in the non-GitHub repo listed in the
draft, or here on the list.
