Hi Mark,

We no longer want to reserve it for single token use and instead want to register five values: read-uncommitted, read-committed, repeatable-read, snapshot, and serializable.

Thanks
Ralf

Chet,

Can you speak to why the request is still for "Isolation", instead of "OData-Isolation"?

Cheers,

> The Isolation header was named OData-Isolation in OData version 4.0.  The OData Protocol document referenced above defines one valid value, snapshot.  To make this header useful to applications other than OData this registration also defines the values read-uncommitted, read-committed, repeatable-read and serializable.  These correspond to the standard transaction isolation levels exposed by most database systems.
