Ok, for now I have added:

    Many header fields use a format including named parameters (for
    instance, Content-Type, defined in Section 6.8 of [Part3]).  Allowing
    both unquoted (token) and quoted (quoted-string) syntax for the
    parameter value enables recipients to use existing parser components.
    Also, the meaning of a value ought to be independent of the syntax
    variant used for it (for an example, see the notes on parameter
    handling for media types in Section 2.3 of [Part3]).
