thanks for noting,

the errata are still just in the "reported" state,
http://www.rfc-editor.org/errata_search.php?rfc=5261 lists the 4 i have
submitted. 3 of those now are actually part of the updates to RFC 5261
in the draft, so i am wondering whether these errata are needed anymore?
ideally, my draft would update RFC 5261, and then the errata would be

2.0 is a vast improvement over 1.0, but it also is much more complex to
implement. when 1.0 was released, XML was all the rage and there were a
lot of people implementing specs. when 2.0 was released, the XML hyper
curve already trended downward, plus it's just harder to implement. as a
result it's true that it's surprisingly hard to find implementations of
2.0. so while personally, i always use 2.0 because you can write better
code, it's true that in specs, if you can get away with 1.0, it may be a
good idea to stick to it.
