IPP> ADM - Trouble with references

One of the things I discovered during last week's IETF meeting in LA is
that we are in trouble with a couple of our references in the IPP drafts.
This means that even if we get past the IESG review, we will have trouble
when documents arrive at the RFC editor's desk.

Here are the problem children:

RFC2234 ABNF, although this is an RFC officially on the standards track,
Dave Crocker who is the editor, indicated that there are still
a couple of minor editorial
changes to fix. He will do those ASAP.

TLS TLS has been accepted by the IESG, but they have a reference problem
with PKIX, which still has to be resolved. The quick fix will
be to change PKIX
to X.509 as reference. The editors are working on
this change.

URI The URI draft has not matured to the standards track. There are some
serious problems to resolve, which may take considerable
time. The
advice from Larry Masinter, who is the editor, seems to be to go
back to using URL where ever we use URI (which would also
mean changing a number of
attribute names!).

Sigh :-(
