Subject: Issue: HTTP10_PROXY - Proposed wording

In section 5, after this paragraph

	An "M-" aware proxy  that does not act as the ultimate recipient
	of a mandatory extension declaration MUST NOT remove the declaration
	or the "M-" method name prefix when forwarding the message.

add, the following paragraph:

	An agent receiving an HTTP/1.0 (or lower-version) message that
	includes a Connection header MUST, for each connection-token
	in this field, remove and ignore any header field(s) from
	the message with the same name as the connection-token.
	Any "M-" method name prefix introduced as a result of
	discarded hop-by-hop extensions MUST be ignored and
	removed by a proxy when forwarding the message.
