Mark, Actually the document I referenced is no longer a draft. It's now an RFC 

and obsoletes RFC2965 which obsoletes RFC2109 which obsoletes "version 0"

You mention that if this spec was approved it would still be invalid to use a
colon in an unquoted value. Could you point out the section in that spec that
explains this?

In rfc2965 a reference is made to the token field from the http spec but in
which delimiter fields are explicitly disallowed by rfc6265 uses a cookie-octet

Do you believe that supporting rfc6265 means not conforming to the servlet
specification ? I've been looking into it and it seems to only mention RFC2109
and "version 0" as two possible ways to format cookies send to the client.
I don't believe it mentions how cookies sent by the client should be
