Proposal:

---8<---
Consuming implementations MAY fix an invalid header field into a usable field-value. Consuming implementations SHOULD NOT reject the message.

Note: For some specific class of products, implementations might need to behave differently. (e.g., the implementation is a validator). As such, the default handling of invalid fields is to ignore them.
