To clarify, I don't want to redesign Retry-After :)
Instead I'm working on a new I-D to standardize `RateLimit-*` headers:

- https://ioggstream.github.io/draft-polli-ratelimit-headers/draft-polli-ratelimit-headers.html

and I'm investigating the relations with `Retry-After`:

- https://github.com/ioggstream/draft-polli-ratelimit-headers/issues/15#issuecomment-518199305

Agree. You can see:

- https://ioggstream.github.io/draft-polli-ratelimit-headers/draft-polli-ratelimit-headers.html#rfc.section.3.3

If you are interested in the I-D, your suggestions and contributions
will be precious and welcome.

Have a nice day,
R
