There was earlier a desire from some members of the WG to be able 
to set arbitrary HTTP header fields. This proposal replaces my 
earlier proposal at [1], which we had postponed until we work on 
features had started.

HTTP binding:
  feature
   http://www.example.org/2003/03/http/header-field
   property
    name: 
http://www.example.org/2003/03/http/header-field/name-value-pair
    type: xsd:array
