Re: Protocol Action: The Content-MD5 Header Field to Draft Standard

To be consistent with the rest of MIME terminology, I would suggest
the term "object", even though that term is not given an explicit
definition in 1521.  Something like "...the MD5 algorithm is computed
on the canonical form of the MIME entity's object."

Why object ? Is not the MD5 computed on the BODY of the entity ?

A more substantial rewrite of the paragraph would be:

Nice. Just replace 'object' by body.
