Dear Experts,

 I’ve only heard from Sergey and Markus so far (thanks!). As I stated before, I’m going to assume that everyone else is in perfect agreement with the proposal that Marek and I put forward.

 Speak up if that’s not the case ;)

Features not on this list would be considered for a future version of JAX-RS, either 2.2 or a 3.0.
