ABNF in draft-ietf-spki-cert-structure-05.txt
Would it be a good idea to convert the BNF in
draft-ietf-spki-cert-structure-05.txt to use the ABNF syntax defined in
RFC 2234? RFC 2234 is currently at Proposed Standard.
The only difficulty I see is that RFC2234 specifies that all strings
are case-independent, but we could presumably override that by saying
BNF constructs in this document use a variant of ABNF [RFC
2234]. The only difference between the variant used in this
document and the ABNF defined in [RFC 2234] is that quoted
strings in the BNF used in this document are case-dependent
(so that "display" and "DisPlAy" mean different things), but
quoted strings in [RFC 2234] ABNF are case-independent (so that
"display" and "DisPlAy" mean the same thing).
