Hi everyone,

Below is a pointer to a new I-D describing an approach for clients to request 
session tickets via a new post-handshake message. This is useful for 
applications that perform parallel connection establishment and racing, e.g., 
via Happy Eyeballs. It should also help reduce ticket waste. More uses and 
details are given in the document. 

We would very much appreciate feedback on the mechanism utility and design.

> Abstract:
>   TLS session tickets enable stateless connection resumption for
>   clients without server-side per-client state.  Servers vend session
>   tickets to clients, at their discretion, upon connection
>   establishment.  Clients store and use tickets when resuming future
>   connections.  Moreover, clients should use tickets at most once for
>   session resumption, especially if such keying material protects early
>   application data.  Single-use tickets bound the number of parallel
>   connections a client may initiate by the number of tickets received
>   from a given server.  To address this limitation, this document
>   describes a mechanism by which clients may request tickets as needed
>   during a connection.
> Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission
> until the htmlized version and diff are available at tools.ietf.org.
