Oh. Yes. I completely forgot about XPAT.
Scott, that's a definitive answer. RFC 2980 is the only current
specification for XPAT, which definitely implemented and used in the real
world and which we are not at all prepared to standardize further at this
point. We can't obsolete it completely or relegate it to historical
status until we've dealt with that.
I do think we should mark RFC 2980 as updated by the new base
specification, AUTHINFO, and STREAMING, though.
