Hi Gunther,

Thanks for bringing it up. 

What do people think about this? Note the discussion on the issue Gunther raised:

My .02 -- If we're not sure that we can get this into the spec quickly, it may make more sense to do it as a separate draft. It doesn't need to be in the same draft as CH; putting the headers you see there together was only for convenience.
