I have reviewed this document as part of the security directorate's ongoing
effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the IESG. These comments
were written primarily for the benefit of the security area directors. Document
editors and WG chairs should treat these comments just like any other last call
comments.

This document specifies an encoding suitable for use in HTTP header fields that
is compatible with a simplified profile of the encoding defined in RFC2231, and
obsoletes RFC5987.

Compared to RFC 5987, the updates in this document does not introduce any
additional security considerations, and the contents in the security
considerations section is exactly identical to the counterparts in RFC 5987.
So, I agree this document is ready for publication as Proposed Standard.

Cheers

Dacheng
