Not sure there is many other examples in the current BNF. There probably
is some minor ones, but I can't remember one..

But I'm also of the opinion that a cleanup similar to RFC2822 would do
HTTP a great deal good, and might even be within our intended scope if
done carefully. But that discussion is best left until we reach the ABNF
goal, allowing some automated tests of the BNF scope.
