I see that we've been inconsistent about whether -header BNF
non-terminals include or do not include CRLF.

If there's no objection, I will forward these requests to
the RFC editor as well; I imagine that Keith will need to
ask for IESG approval.

I hope there aren't a lot more like these, or we might be
forced to reballot.
