Two comments.

As far as I can see, you are now introducing a new HTTP header syntax,

I would propose that you collapse the two headers to one, and stay
inside the "common structure" I proposed[1], so we won't need another
parser.

For instance change:

   HTTP/1.1 200 OK
   Content-Type: text/html
   Content-Encoding: gzip, aesgcm
   Transfer-Encoding: chunked
   Encryption: keyid="me@example.com";
               salt="m2hJ_NttRtFyUiMRPwfpHA"

to:

   HTTP/1.1 200 OK
   Content-Type: text/html
   Content-Encoding: gzip, aesgcm
   Transfer-Encoding: chunked
   Encryption: aesgcm;keyid="me@example.com";
               salt="m2hJ_NttRtFyUiMRPwfpHA"
