Subject: Issues: UNCONDITIONAL_COMPLIANCE = Proposed wording


In section 3, change

	An extension declaration can be used to indicate that an extension has
       been applied to a message and possibly to reserve a part of the header
       namespace identified by a header field prefix (see 3.1).

to

	An extension declaration can be used to indicate that an
	extension has been applied to a message and possibly to
	reserve a part of the header namespace identified by a header
	field prefix (see 3.1).

	This specification does not define any ramifications of
	applying an extension to a message nor whether two
	extensions can or cannot coexist within the same message.
	It is strictly a framework for describing which extensions
	have been applied and what the recipient either must or may
	do in order to properly interpret any extension declarations
	within a message.

and add in section 5, change

	An HTTP server MUST NOT return a 2xx status-code without obeying all
       mandatory extension declaration(s) in a mandatory request.

to

	An HTTP server MUST NOT return a 2xx status-code without
	being unconditionally compliant with all 	mandatory extension
	declaration(s) in a mandatory request.
