> Abstract:
> A Request-Timeout header is defined for Hypertext Transfer Protocol
> (HTTP).  This end-to-end header informs an origin server and any
> intermediaries of the maximum time that a client will await a
> response to its request.  A server can use this header to ensure that
> a timely response is generated.  This also identifies requests as
> being potentially long-lived, and allows for better resource
> allocation for these requests.
> 
> A Connection-Timeout header is defined for HTTP.  This hop-by-hop
> header informs the entity at the other end of a connection of the
> maximum time that an idle connection is kept open.  This header
> improves reliability by providing better information about the idle
> connection management policy of HTTP hosts.
