Here is the proposal for issue #178 [1] on Content-MD5 and partial 
content, based on earlier discussions on the mailing list and during 
Stockholm's IETF meeting:

In part 5, section 3.1. 206 Partial Content
Old:
<<
    If the 206 response is the result of an If-Range request, the
    response SHOULD NOT include other entity-headers.  Otherwise, the
    response MUST include all of the entity-headers that would have been
    returned with a 200 (OK) response to the same request.
>>
New:
<<
    If the 206 response is the result of an If-Range request, the
    response SHOULD NOT include other entity-headers.  Otherwise, the
    response MUST include all of the entity-headers that would have been
    returned with a 200 (OK) response to the same request, except for
    Content-MD5 that MUST NOT be present.

    Recipients MUST ignore Content-MD5 on 206 responses; Caches MUST strip
    Content-MD5 when caching or combining 206 responses with existing
    cached content.
