Johnny, David, Rowan: Thanks much for the excellent feedback. I'm tied up in meetings through tomorrow but by Monday I'll make the suggested updates and roll this into the second editor's draft of XRI Resolution 2.0 Working Draft 11, which we aim to post by next Wednesday.

In the interest of keeping it light and simple to process, I believe it would be enough to make this explicit just before 8.1 by saying that any of the two protocols MAY be attempted by an RP (plus fixing the fallback from HEAD to GET). > Also explicitly pointing out that a URL hosting a XRDS document > only is > required to implement one or more of the discovery mechanisms Not "one or more"; GET is REQUIRED, HEAD is OPTIONAL in Yadis.

An RP may choose to only do GET and not care about the more efficient (but optional on the server side) HEAD.
