232. Review and Consensus
24
25As chartered, this work was very constrained; the WG sought only to clarify
26RFC2616, making significant technical changes only where there were
27considerably interoperability or security issues.
28
29While the bulk of the work was done by a core team of editors, it has been
30reviewed by a substantial number of implementers, and design issues enjoyed
31input from many of them.
32
33It has been through two Working Group Last Calls, with multiple reviewers each
34time. We have also discussed this work with external groups (e.g., the W3C TAG).
