1.2 Normative References COAP

                 Key: OBIX-131
                 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OBIX-131
             Project: OASIS Open Building Information Exchange (oBIX) TC
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: REST Specification
    Affects Versions: REST PR02
         Environment: TAB Review
            Reporter: Toby Considine
            Assignee: Toby Considine

"1.2 Normative References reads in part: 

COAP Shelby, Z., Hartke, K., Bormann, C., ""Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP)"", IETF Internet Draft, Version 18, 28 June 2013. 

Which expired on December 30, 2013 by its own terms. http://tools.ietf.org/search/draft-ietf-core-coap-18 

Further, an Internet-Draft, expired or not, is not eligible to function as a normative reference. 

As the draft bears on its face: 

Internet-Drafts are draft documents valid for a maximum of six months 
and may be updated, replaced, or obsoleted by other documents at any 
time. It is inappropriate to use Internet-Drafts as reference 
material or to cite them other than as ""work in progress."" 

There is no way to require confomance to (the function of a normative reference) a document that may go away at any moment. Moreover, that is so stated by its issuing agency."
