One of the things I've been working on lately is a cleanup of the
Interceptors spec.

The intent here is not to change the semantics of the Interceptors 1.2
spec, but to clarify a number of areas that appeared to me somewhat
confusing. I've also flagged several open issues that we need to
either resolve or explicitly specify as portability concerns.

I would appreciate if you would read the document in its entirety, and
weigh in on the open issues. Also, if you believe that I have
inadvertantly changed the semantics of the spec, please let me know,
as that was not my intent.

You can download the document here:

The document has change-bars that reflect a superset of all changes.
Since this work has also entailed some minor reorganization, the
change-bars are not particularly helpful.

Once I get feedback on the open issues (and I find time to write some
more extensive examples for the spec), I plan to circulate another
draft in advance of submitting an MR. My expectation is that this
would be an "errata MR" (Rev A) as I am not planning any API changes.
