Hi.From: Mark Davis â <mark at macchiato.com>
Date: Mon, 8 Aug 2011 09:07:12 -0700> Ok, we've rolled up changes based on feedback and posted. (I wasn't able to post earlier; most of these were in the working > document linked to while posting was disallowed.)>  . . .  It looks fine to me; one more minor proofreading nit if you're still looking for those:
2.5 Last P
"A language tag with the t extension MAY be used to request a specific   transform of content.  In such a case, the recipient SHOULD return   content that corresponds as closely as feasible to the requested   transform, including the specification of the mechanism.  For   example, if the request is ja-t-it-m0-xxx-v21a-2007, and the   recipient has content corresponding to both ja-t-it-m0-xxx-v21a-2007   and ja-t-it-m0-xxx-v21a-2009, then the 2007 version would be   preferred.  As is the case for language matching as discussed in   [BCP47], different implementations MAY have different measures of   "closeness"."
{ COMMENT:  I would prefer "should be returned" or "is normally returned" over "would be preferred;" also I would not use "would;" I would use "should" or else use all present tense forms here . . . }
