Technical Summary

   The existing IMAP URL specification (RFC 5092) lists several
   <access> identifiers and <access> identifier prefixes, that can
   be used to restrict access to URLAUTH-generated URLs.  However,
   these identifiers do not provide facilities for new services such as
   streaming.  This document proposes a set of new <access> identifiers
   as well as an IANA mechanism to register new <access> identifiers for
   future applications.

   This document updates RFC 5092.

Working Group Summary

RFC Editor Note

Please change the bullet list in Section 3 to read:

OLD:
   o  <access> identifier - The name of the application e.g. "stream"

   o  <access> identifier prefix - The name of the application e.g.
      "stream" followed by a "+" and then a userid.  For example
      "stream+testuser".
NEW:
   o  <access> identifier - The name of the application e.g. "exampleapp"

   o  <access> identifier prefix - The name of the application e.g.
      "exampleapp3" followed by a "+" and then a userid.  For example
      "exampleapp3+testuser".

   Note that an <access> identifier name can also be registered as 
   an <access> identifier prefix. However this would require 2 separare
   IANA registrations.


Please change the 1st sentence of the 2nd paragraph in Section 6 to read:

OLD:
   Access identifiers and prefixes MUST be specified in a standards
   track or IESG approved experimental RFC.
NEW:
   Access identifiers and prefixes MUST be registered using 
   the "IETF Review" policy (RFC 5226).


For sections 6.3-6.6 please add a reference to RFC 5092 as an additional
reference to this document.
