> Abstract:
>   The purpose of the TLS feature extension is to prevent downgrade
>   attacks that are not otherwise prevented by the TLS protocol. In
>   particular, the TLS feature extension may be used to mandate support
>   for revocation checking features in the TLS protocol such as OCSP
>   stapling.  Informing clients that an OCSP status response will always
>   be stapled permits an immediate failure in the case that the response
>   is not stapled. This in turn prevents a denial of service attack that
>   might otherwise be possible.
> Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission
> until the htmlized version and diff are available at tools.ietf.org.
> The IETF Secretariat
