One thing that occurred to me (and a trawl of the RFC series would probably throw up a few examples like rfc4647[1]) is whether the best way to slice this up is to avoid being exhaustive wrt error-handling for all UA types in the HTTP spec itself and to have a separate BCP that covers the situations that most common(/whatever criteria apply).

Something like "Observed Browser treatment of the C-D header" or "Guidelines for implementing C-D error handling" etc.


[1] It's just the first BCP I found from a quick search that looked like it might make an example (which means it's probably not a particularly great example).
