        Title           : HTTP Client Hints
        Author          : Ilya Grigorik

   HTTP defines proactive content negotiation to allow servers to select
   the appropriate response for a given request, based upon the user
   agent's characteristics, as expressed in request headers.  In
   practice, clients are often unwilling to send those request headers,
   because it is not clear whether they will be used, and sending them
   impacts both performance and privacy.

   This document defines two response headers, Accept-CH and Accept-CH-
   Lifetime, that servers can use to advertise their use of request
   headers for proactive content negotiation, along with a set of
   guidelines for the creation of such headers, colloquially known as
   "Client Hints."

   It also defines an initial set of Client Hints.
