Okay, I propose then that we modify the comment text in the reported
erratum, and mark it as "hold for document update" (not "verified").  Does
this proposal seem agreeable to everyone as a path forward?  Other
document updates could then proceed via the normal paths.


OLD COMMENT:

RFC 6680 makes no mention of blocking or not blocking on network
interaction, though RFC 2743 does. This seems like the most reasonable
interpretation of what is currently in RFC 6680. Calls which are not
explicitly permitted to block are assumed to be not permitted to block.

NEW COMMENT:

RFC 6680 makes no mention of blocking or not blocking on network
interaction, though RFC 2743 does. This seems like the most reasonable
interpretation of what is currently in RFC 6680.
