Hi,

RFC 2234 (ABNF) has been superseded by an IESG approved I-D
(not yet published in a new RFC).

This affects WIMS and essentially all other PWG protocol specs.

Cheers,
- Ira

> Internet technical specifications often need to define a format

> specifications.  The current specification documents ABNF.  It
> balances compactness and simplicity, with reasonable representational
> power.  The differences between standard BNF and ABNF involve naming
> rules, repetition, alternatives, order-independence, and value
> ranges.  This specification also supplies additional rule definitions
> and encoding for a core lexical analyzer of the type common to
> several Internet specifications.
