This could be covered in the discussion period following the review
of the Internet draft for HTTP 1.0. My plan is for us to identify goals
for one or more subgroups to look at missing features in HTTP 1.0.

The subgroups would recommend suitable extensions to HTTP 1.0, or work
with the subgroup drafting the HTTP-NG spec to make sure that the identified
needs are being covered.

I will send out a revised agenda that makes this clear.
