draft-ietf-tokbind-ttrp-03 looks ok.

There is nothing to distinguish between Token Binding being offered by the TTRP but not accepted by the client vs not being offered at all. I’m not sure if that matters. Perhaps it only makes sense for a server to look for these headers if it is sure all the reverse proxies that serve it support Token Binding and are configured to insert these headers.

Minor typos:
There is no example of Sec-Other-Token-Binding.

2.1.2 ABNF for EncodedTokenBindingType doesn’t strictly need "A" / "a" as “ABNF strings are case insensitive” [RFC5234 section 2.3<>] so just "A" would do. Having both does reinforce that upper and lower case can be used. Re-using the HEXDIG core ABNF rule would be slightly better, with a case-insensitive mention in the text.

   A Token Binding type value (a single byte) can be represented as an
   "EncodedTokenBindingType", which is a case-insensitive hex encoding.

     EncodedTokenBindingType = 1*2HEXDIG

                 Figure 2: Encoded Token Binding Type ABNF

Typo: section 3: “… they are *a* single logical server”

In order to facilitate that... could we get some folks to review
the TTRP draft before 102?

Maybe... please... ??

        Cheers Leif
