I could add a specific example of what you are talking about if people

I think the most useful thing would be more uniform use of the terms:

  boundary parameter
  encapsulation boundary

The grammar seems to use "delimiter" and "boundary" for more or less what
the text calls "encapsulation boundary" and "boundary parameter",

Sounds like clearing this up is what you have in mind; looking forward to
seeing it.

I agree that this is the best course of action. Regardless of how any of this
is decided or modified or whatever, we have too many terms here and need to
standardize on some subset of them.

I'll see what I can do for the next draft.

One more thing. In an earlier response I said that the handling of trailing
whitespace was not appropriate for inclusion in the RFC. I forgot that a prior
discussion had led to the conclusion that this does need to be specified and
that I had already done so. My apologies if this confused anyone.
