I'd like to point out that I still think my concerns over the 
inconsistent use of quoted-string 
are valid and not addressed; and I think they should be before you go to 

Note that since we had a long discussion with Adam Barth about 
quoted-string, Chrome has started supporting it in Content-Disposition, 
and a similar fix for Content-Type is in preparation 

In <> 
Jeff points out that Firefox doesn't support quoted-string in all 
parameters, but IMHO that's a bogus argument because it currently 
doesn't support q-s *at all*; so it will need to be fixed to conform to 
the current spec as well (see 

I believe this could be a useful discussion topic for Paris.

Best regards, Julian
