RFC-1925

Ho notato con colpevole ritardo una richiesta di modifica alla RFC-1925, una di quelle memorabili produzioni datate 1° aprile.

La modifica richiesta è comunque notevolissima:

Section 2. (2) says:
(2) No matter how hard you push and no matter what the priority, you can’t increase the speed of light.

It should say:
(2) If you try really hard, and have the right equipment (or suitable funding), you might be able to increase the speed of light. Or not, we’re not sure yet.

Notes:
Experimental results suggest it may be possible to go faster; see:
http://arxiv.org/abs/1109.4897
It’s true that these results have not been independently verified, and it’s true that the speed of light was not observed to be increased (only exceeded), but there is now enough doubt involved to justify an errata (with a view to an update in a potential future BIS WG).
