DNS rebinding not mentioned in "HTTP/1.1, part 1"

To: HTTP Working Group <ietf-http-wg@w3.org>
The "Security Considerations" section of "HTTP/1.1, part 1" does not
mention DNS rebinding attacks. The normative language in the section
on "DNS spoofing" seems to require vulnerability to DNS rebinding

If HTTP clients cache the results of host name lookups in order to
achieve a performance improvement, they MUST observe the TTL
information reported by DNS
