OK, proposed patch: 

...which will turn the Abstract for P1 to:


    The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is an application-level
    protocol for distributed, collaborative, hypertext information
    systems.  HTTP has been in use by the World Wide Web global
    information initiative since 1990.  This document is Part 1 of the
    seven-part specification that defines the protocol referred to as
    "HTTP/1.1" and, taken together, obsoletes RFC 2616 and moves it to
    historic status, along with its predecessor RFC 2068.

    Part 1 provides an overview of HTTP and its associated terminology,
    defines the "http" and "https" Uniform Resource Identifier (URI)
    schemes, defines the generic message syntax and parsing requirements
    for HTTP message frames, and describes general security concerns for

    (on using CONNECT for TLS upgrades) and moves them to historic
