Location in reviewed document:
Section 2, setRequestHeader

The section on setRequestHeader says:

If the header argument is in the list of request headers either use multiple headers, combine the values or usea combination of those

It then gives and example in which the headers are combined algorithmically (basically, concatenating them). However, some headers, such as Accept-Language, use q-weights and other structure and this approach may not work acceptably in those cases. Perhaps provide some guidance on these cases?
