Note: This ballot was opened for revision 11 and is now closed.
Summary: Needs a YES. Has enough positions to pass.
My DSICUSS question was:
What do the numbers in the first column in appendix B represent?
The answer is that they are offsets into the certificate.
Russ and I agreed (via email) that it would be good to add a sentence
about that so that people can understand what the first column represents.
I have cleared my discuss based on version -12.
I still agree with Ned's comments about describing data, but will leave it to
Ned to say if those issues have been addressed. Still worried about the GIF
reference, but it's not worth holding the document for.
Changed my discuss vote to no-obj after discussion with Russ,
Steve and others.
I've cleared my discuss, but a couple of nits remain:
The field name for the media type is called "mediaSubType". This should be
changed to "mediaType" since it contains the entire media type string, not
just the subtype.
The restructuring that's been done fixes the problem of having to
use image types exclusively for images and audio types exclusively
for aduio, but this in turn means that the comment on the media type
field "MIME image or audio subtype" is no longer appropriate. Suggest
changing it to "MIME media type name and optional parameters".
I continue to believe that it is a mistake not to use media features
rather than inventing a new private nonextensible labelling scheme,
but my belief is not cause to block this document going forward.
