Description

The section on the comparison ladder contains a number of heuristics and best practices about practical IRI comparison which is likely to evolve over time. I think it would be better to move this into a separate "best practices" document.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

draft-masinter-iri-comparison splits out this section and provides a new introduction. That document probably could use substantial work, but at least the split is made.
