There are a couple of errors, but they'll probably get fixed automa-
tically (e.g., RFC 2616 does not actually reference RFC 4288 as the
errata says, and the HTTP-Version grammar, if I recall correctly, as
specified there allows LWS in undesired places); as subsequent dis-
cussion has shown, there is probably no consensus on i5 (Via). I do
not agree with the i16 resolution ("identity") in that I think the
specification needs to discuss how to handle messages that use it
(e.g., Opera will include it in its TE header). I will open an issue
for that. Other than this seems fine.
