I am for #2 personally speaking. The errata discussion has become way
too complex and it would be extremely confusing for operational users
of dkim to have to switch back and forth between rfc and errata.
This, as long as 4871bis is a "short" step before draft standard - and
the draft standard doesnt diverge significantly from 4871bis.

1. Include the other errata into Dave's draft, leave the whole thing as "old
/ new text" format, and put it out as an RFC that updates 4871. There would
no rev of 4871, and implementors would need to use both documents. Work on
4871-bis from there.
2. Include the other errata and Dave's draft into a 4871-bis, which would
obsolete 4871 and make sure that implementors get the right version. Nothing
would go out as "old / new"; the merged document would be a rev of 4871.
4871-ter from there.
Then there's the question of where ADSP stands, and whether it can proceed as
or needs to be changed in light of the "errata". Pasi may have some comments

and we need to release it and move it forward.
