To whom it may concern,
as pointed out by the Free Software Fondation, the proposed/drafted "TLS
authz extension" is threatened by a patent filed by one of the authors.
Therefore I kindly urge you to postpone the standard process
to reconsider all the legal consequences that might turn out for users.
I can't imagine that the IETF encourages questionable practices
regarding intellectual property rights during a standard process.
