Dear secdispatch Chairs,

I have written draft-richardson-lamps-rfc7030est-clarify-02 to deal with
the errata:
   https://www.rfc-editor.org/errata/eid5107

it turns out that deployed code prevents us from having a signal that
would let us remove the needless base64 encoding, but at least we can
remove the deprecated CTE header which was not being used anyway.

I believe that we can deal with:
    https://www.rfc-editor.org/errata/eid4384
    https://www.rfc-editor.org/errata/eid5108

in this document as well, although I haven't yet done that.  The result would
be a standards track document that Updates RFC7030.

As an aside, I think that the errata needs to move from reported to accepted.
