Typos in USEFOR
Just a few remarks on USEFOR in case it is still time (AUTH48?) to
take some of them into account.
User agents MUST meet the definition of MIME conformance in [RFC2049]
and MUST also support [RFC2231]. This level of MIME conformance
provides support for internationalization and multimedia in message
bodies ([RFC2045], [RFC2046], [RFC2231]), and support for
internationalization of header fields ([RFC2047], [RFC2231]). Note
that [Errata] currently exist for [RFC2046] and [RFC2231].
RFC 2045 and 2047 also have errata. Shouldn't it be mentioned?
(Or no mention of errata at all? It is not said elsewhere in the document.)
Each of these header fields may occur at most once in a news article.
What should we understand? That they SHOULD NOT appear more than once?
Why isn't it said in a less ambiguous way?
Still in 3:
Newsgroups after Lines, in alphabetical order.
NOTE: The length restriction ensures that systems that accept
message identifiers as a parameter when referencing an article
(e.g. [RFC3977]) can rely on a bounded length.
Only one space after "e.g." here.
Still in 3.1.3:
The msg-id MUST NOT be more than 250 octets in length.
Observe that msg-id includes the < and >.
Shouldn't it be <msg-id>? (or message-ID?)
Still in 3.1.3:
o even though commonly derived from <domain>s, <id-rights>s are
case-sensitive (and thus, once created, are not to be altered
during subsequent transmission or copying)
A final dot is missing.
Incidentally, I think that lists should be homogenized in the document
(sometimes they end with ".", sometimes with ",", sometimes with nothing).
The <dist-name>s "world" and "local" are reserved. "world" indicates
The whole section is impacted. Full dots are not followed by two spaces.
The Followup-To header field specifies to which newsgroup(s) the
poster has requested that followups are to be posted.
Shouldn't it be "the poster has requested that followups should be posted"?
Or with the subjunctive "the poster has requested that followups be posted"?
