< the time has come to move on the next step of the MIME documents.

The only problem I have with the proposed documents is the lack of treatment
of the content-disposition header. Rfc 1806 needs to be moved into the
standards track along with these MIME documents. The features of MIME which
were removed in favor of placing them in the content-disposition header
(e.g., Content-Type: name= -> Content-Disposition: filename=) are needed in
the community, and we need a standards track method of dealing with those

I have a draft with a couple of added features (file modes, etc.) If
there are no objectiosn Ill submit it. It dawns on me I was going to
do that before the LAST ietf. Ugh. time flies.
