Fwd: Protocol Action: 'The Archived-At Message Header Field' to Proposed Standard

>The IESG has approved the following document:
>- 'The Archived-At Message Header Field '
>    <draft-duerst-archived-at-09.txt> as a Proposed Standard
>This document has been reviewed in the IETF but is not the product of an
>IETF Working Group.
>The IESG contact person is Chris Newman.
>A URL of this Internet-Draft is:
>Technical Summary
>  This defines a new email header field, Archived-At:, to provide
>  a direct link to the archived form of an individual email message.
>  It can be added by mailing lists or news servers associated with an
>  online archive.
>Working Group Summary
>  This is the product of an individual submitter.
>Protocol Quality
>  This was discussed on the message header field review mailing list.
>  During development of this specification, a decision was made to allow
>  folding whitespace in the middle of the URL, but to otherwise use a
>  simpler and more restrictive syntax than RFC 2369 which covers a related
>  topic.  This specification was reviewed for the IESG by Chris Newman.
>  It has been used by the W3C and Gmane.

It would be grand if the ietf-general and ietf-announce mailing lists 
could start supporting this new standard as soon as possible. (Heck, 
it would be great if all lists housed at the IETF did!)
