Hi,

I'm currently going through 
<http://www.w3.org/Protocols/HTTP/1.1/rfc2616bis/draft-lafon-rfc2616bis-latest.html>, 
checking for changes that currenly do not appear in the issues list at 
<http://www.w3.org/Protocols/HTTP/1.1/rfc2616bis/issues/>.

This is one of these... (in context: 
<http://www.w3.org/Protocols/HTTP/1.1/rfc2616bis/draft-lafon-rfc2616bis-latest.html#rfc.section.13.3.3>):
