Requests for Comment

“Requests for comments” are posted to facilitate discussion of possible features; an RFC does not mean that the feature will be implemented, or that the feature will be implemented exactly as specified in the RFC! Do not assume an RFC will be implemented; do not create and post content that uses extensions proposed in the RFC. Wait for the final specification before creating airplanes and models!
