RE: Semantics of {http cookies} Property.

Jonathan Marsh-2

Thank you for this comment.  The Working Group this issue as a CR110 [1].

The latest editor's draft [2] adds text and an assertion about the meaning
of cookies="true".  For your second point, the test "MAY indicate" was
changed to "can indicate" [3].

Unless you let us know otherwise within 2 weeks, we will assume you agree
with the resolution of this issue.
