I was hoping that we could simplify things for implementers, future API designers, extension authors, etc.

It's pretty clear that this isn't so simple. I'm concerned that any advice we could give would be so vague as to be useless. 

Part of me wonders whether it would be useful to say something specific about 100 Continue responses and the relationship of their headers to the final response's, but that also feels like a rathole.

If someone has a suggestion for specific text that concretely improves things, great, but otherwise, we should probably move on to more productive discussions.

Cheers,
