Hi shadi,

Very short and quick comment, maybe more will come later.

The two titles are misleading and/or might lead to misunderstanding  
if not rants from people. I suspect some people will think on the  
line "Oh noooo… they decided now to make HTTP inside RDF over HTTP."

which is not the case.

And your abstract does a better job if people are willing to read it  
after the title ;)

[[[
The identification of resources in the Web via URIs [RFC3986] may not  
be sufficient to uniquely resolve a document as other factors might  
come into play like HTTP content negotiation according to pre-defined  
user characteristics. This issue is particularly important for  
conformance testing, conformance claims and reporting languages like  
the Evaluation and Report Language (EARL, [EARL Schema]) when they  
address Web resources. This document describes a representation of  
HTTP concepts in RDF that will serve to the purpose mentioned  
earlier, as it can allow the identification of resources served via  
the HTTP protocol. The proposed vocabulary also includes HTTPS and  
some extensions to HTTP outside the standard RFCs.

-- HTTP in RDF

So I would suggest something like

"Representation of HTTP concepts in RDF"
"HTTP vocabulary in RDF"
"HTTP Taxonomy in RDF"

etc.
Same for RFC822.
