Hi,

as far as I can tell, the references below are informative and should be 
classified as such. In some cases, they need to be updated as well:

     Luo1998 ("Tunneling TCP based protocols through Web proxy servers", 
also update reference to quote the expired Internet Draft properly).

     Nie1997 ("Network Performance Effects of HTTP/1.1, CSS1, and PNG").

     Pad1995 ("Improving HTTP Latency").

     RFC821 (SMTP), also update the reference to RFC2821.

     RFC822 ("STANDARD FOR THE FORMAT OF ARPA INTERNET TEXT MESSAGES") 
-- but add another instance as RFC822ABNF for the cases where the 
reference if for the ABNF part (these references will later be replaced 
by references to RFC4234 (see issue abnf)).

     RFC959 (FTP).

     RFC1036 ("Standard for Interchange of USENET Messages").

     RFC1123 ("Requirements for Internet Hosts -- Application and 
Support") -- it is only used as a background reference for rfc1123-date, 
which this spec defines itself (note that note this disagrees with 
draft-gettys-http-v11-spec-rev-00 which made it normative).

     RFC1305 ("Network Time Protocol (Version 3)").

     RFC1436 (Gopher).

     RFC1630 (URI Syntax) -- there'll be a normative reference to a 
newer spec.

     RFC1738 (URL) -- there'll be a normative reference to a newer spec.

     RFC1806 ("Communicating Presentation Information in Internet 
Messages: The Content-Disposition Header").

     RFC1808 (Relative Uniform Resource Locators).

     RFC1867 ("Form-based File Upload in HTML"), also update the 
reference to RFC2388 ("Returning Values from Forms: multipart/form-data").

     RFC1900 ("Renumbering Needs Work").

     RFC1945 (HTTP/1.0).

     RFC1950 (ZLIB).

     RFC1951 (DEFLATE).

     RFC1952 (GZIP).

     RFC2026 ("The Internet Standards Process -- Revision 3").

     RFC2049 ("Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) Part Five: 
Conformance Criteria and Examples").

     RFC2068 (HTTP/1.1).

     RFC2076 ("Common Internet Message Headers").

     RFC2110 (MHTML), also update the reference to RFC2557.

     RFC2145 ("Use and Interpretation of HTTP Version Numbers").

     RFC2183 ("Communicating Presentation Information in Internet 
Messages: The Content-Disposition Header Field").

     RFC2277 ("IETF Policy on Character Sets and Languages").

     RFC2279 (UTF8), also update the reference to RFC3629.

     RFC2324 (HTCPCP/1.0).

     Spero ("Analysis of HTTP Performance Problems").

     Tou1998 ("Analysis of HTTP Performance").

     WAIS ("WAIS Interface Protocol Prototype Functional Specification 
(v1.5)").


Please review & confirm.

Best regards, Julian
