The TACK draft [1] has been stable for a while (the last substantive change
was draft-01, last September).

We're hoping to see some deployment this year, so we may request "early
allocation" [2] of a TLS ExtensionType in the next few months.

Also, draft-02 will expire in a few weeks, so we may as well make a -03.

So!  The next couple weeks would be a great time to send us feedback.
 Anything is appreciated, but we'd particularly like to know if anything is
confusing or hard to follow...
