Hi Ted,

I appreciate the quick review.

Yes.

This would require the reader to consult two documents -- not sure
this is fatal however.

If the "updates" approach is chosen, would IANA [1] continue to
reference RFC 7302, or would instead reference the updated RFC?

If the "obsolete" path is chosen, perhaps there is a way to explicitly
highlight the (very limited) changes, beyond the short description in
the abstract?

IMHO it would be ideal to update RFC 7302 in place, since the changes
do not impact identifier semantics, but this is not possible, right?

Best,

-- Pierre
