Hi Slvia, Yves,

Thanks a lot! Your long post helped me to understand the issue :-) In a 
nutshell, I come to the same conclusion than you Silvia, that is:

> I honestly fail to construct a situation where we would use If-Range

... except for one case, that is perhaps what Yves had in mind: the case 
where the UA has just received the first bytes of the resources that 
allows to decode the media (e.g. section 5.2.1 in our doc). Is it a 
boundary case?

Furthermore, should we write down explicitly in the specification the 
variant that Silvia has just made in case the connexion is broken and a 
If-Range could be used in a subsequent request?
