The only issue that's been raised, to date, is that of how this  
interacts with RPC refresh. As far as I can see, the pertinent issue  
is whether we ship a draft, and assign code points to its RPCs, which  
we then revise a couple of months afterwards.

I think the key issue here is whether anyone is likely to ship code  
implementing extended callbacks before they implement the forthcoming  
RPC refresh. I've CC'd the OpenAFS gatekeepers on this email - if  
there are any other public (or private) AFS implementors here, it  
would be good to get a feeling of where we stand on this.

Also, if anyone else has comments, even if its just to say "I read the  
draft, I think its fine", those would be gratefully appreciated.
