1) Phil Griffin made that comment, which proves that he was as confused
as I am, with regard to the use of BASE-64 in messages being exchanged.

2) The comment was not rejected by the TC, it was rejected by the Chair.
I haven't seen any resolution of the TC accepting/rejecting the comments
to the previous ballot.  Indeed, the current ballot will decide if the
document resulting from those rejections/acceptances is approved or not
by the TC.

Again, it was not adopted, yet.

Let's wait and see what the TC decides about this.
