Seven individuals (approximate) submitted comments during the Last 
Call.  That's not much in terms of end-to-end read of the draft.

HTTPbis has a good Wiki due to the efforts of two persons.  The rest 
of the IETF, excluding the IESG, do not believe that it is worth the 
effort updating a Wiki.  Instead of discussing the above questions it 
is easier to create an Wiki page and leave it to anyone with a tools 
login who cares to update it.
