Did anyone not realize that Beast's roadmap includes a standardization
proposal? If so then the documentation and my mailing list comments
have done a poor job...as Prego say's "It's in there!"

I don't have the same experience and involvement with the C++
luminaries that you have, so I lack an inside track on what will
become part of C++2023 or C++2026. Meanwhile, Beast users want HTTP

design for what is standard (or close to it).
