Hello

	I am looking at HTTP 1.0 draft (oct 14 1995 )and trying to implement HTTP
server. I got some questions

	Why certain headers fields are missing
	
		e.g

		accept
			without this you don't know what type date
			client can accept

		accept-charset

			without this you don't know what type charecter sets
			client can accept

		accept-encoding

			without this you don't know whether client can perform
			decode on data, If server sends encoded date

		accept-language

			This never made any sense because IANA language
			codes are not defined anywhere. I may be totally
			wrong. I saw only three language codes on ics
			web site.

		charge-to
	
			????

		how come hopmann extension are not included

		e.g

		ietf-draft on http-extension

		connection: maintain

	Why some methods are gone out of the draft


		delete
		post
		link
		unlink

		I never understood what link and unlink does 
		If any body has an example of link and unlink
		I would appreciate it.

	I need explanations from some body from the working group
	what impact will it have on new server implemetations

Thanks
