Subject: Small error in draft-myers-pop3-auth-01.txt
Beak: is Not

draft-myers-pop3-auth-01.txt states:

   Any use of the string "imap" used in a server authentication
   identity in the definition of an authentication mechanism is
   replaced with the string "pop3".

This was intended to allow server implementations to support both AUTH
KERBEROS_V4 and MIT's "kpop" protocol using the same server
authentication identity.  Unfortunately, I found out that I botched
this--MIT's "kpop" protocol uses "pop" instead of "pop3".

I hope the IESG can consider replacing "pop3" with "pop" in this
passage of draft-myers-pop3-auth-01.txt as the correction of a
typographical error.
