>   Over time, Web browsers have adapted how they use HTTP based upon
>   common server configurations and behaviours.  While this is necessary
>   in the common case, it can be detrimental for performance and
>   interoperability.
> 
>   This document establishes a mechanism whereby origin servers can make
>   available hints for browsers about their preferences and
>   capabilities, without imposing overhead on their interactions or
>   requiring support for them.
> 
>   This is intended to allow browsers to safely optimise connections to
>   servers.
