Folks,

As Gonzalo mentioned, the last blocking DISCUSS points were cleared for
WebFinger.  However, a few additional changes were suggested for the
WebFinger draft.  Some are just editorial and I do not think people will
object, though you are certainly welcome to comment on any change once we
post the new version.

The proposed changes I think might be of concern, I want to mention now.

In section 4, this change is suggested:

OLD:
   the host to which the WebFinger query is issued MUST be
NEW:
   the host to which the WebFinger query is issued SHOULD be

In section 8.5, this change is suggested:

OLD:
    not fully understood SHOULD be ignored and MUST NOT cause
NEW:
    not fully understood SHOULD be ignored and SHOULD NOT cause

Any objection to these MUSTs changing to SHOULD?

Paul
