So I hear this was approved in the meantime without another round of 
review. This is bad.

For instance, the newly introduced Preference-Applied header field is 
defined as:

   Preference-Applied = "Preference-Applied" ":" 1#token

and has the example:

    Response:

      HTTP/1.1 200 OK
      Content-Type: application/json
      Preference-Applied: return=representation
      Content-Location: /my-document

      {"a": 1}

But the "token" ABNF production doesn't include "=".

There may be more problems like these. Please go back to LC.

Best regards, Julian
