Summary: This draft is ready for publication.

This draft relocates the specification of the HTTP Authentication-Info
and Proxy-Authentication-Info Response Header Fields to a separate
document in order to enable their future use by HTTP authentication
schemes other than "Digest" authentication.

As a documentation-only change, this draft is unlikely to have any
operational impact.  Any operational impact of use of these fields by
additional authentication schemes is a concern for the drafts that
define such schemes, and not this draft.
