Technical Summary
The document specifies two IMAP extensions: LITERAL+ and LITERAL-.
LITERAL+ allows the alternate form of literals in all IMAP commands.
LITERAL- is the same as LITERAL+, but disallows the alternate form of
literals unless they are 4096 bytes or less.  This replaces RFC 2088, which
originally defined LITERAL+ as Proposed Standard.

Review and Consensus
The document was reviewed by the Imapapnd Working Group.  There was a
small number of participants interested in the draft.    There was WG
Consensus on the IMAP4 non-synchronizing literals document.

S. Moonesamy is the Document Shepherd for this document. Ben Campbell is
the Responsible Area Director.
