Re: Multiple header fields with the same field name - unwritten assumption about quoted commas in values?

Also worth noting the WWW-Authenticate header, which takes
comma-separated values, themselves containing unquoted commas (and so
breaks the alleged unwritten rule), e.g.:

WWW-Authenticate: Bearer realm="example.org", error="invalid_token",
Basic realm="example.org"

The division between items is the comma-space before a token not
followed by a comma-space.

(Yes, I've had fun because of this)
