All of these in Doug's latest note seem like reasonable changes. Only
> The RFC2822 FWS ABNF definition carries some cruft.
> obs-FWS = 1*WSP *(CRLF 1*WSP) ; obsolete RFC822 text
> FWS = ([*WSP CRLF] 1*WSP) / obs-FWS
> Is there a reason to permit multiple CRLFs? To obsolete support, the
> definition should be removed after 5 years of being declared obsolete.
> FWS should be redefined as Revised FWS such as:
> R-FWS = ([*WSP CRLF] 1*WSP) ; revised
I'd rather leave the FWS definition in RFC2822, rather than putting in
our own. Is there a way to say something that means "FWS from RFC2822,
but NOT obs-FWS"?
