Hi.

In section 7.5.1.2 of part 2[1], table 17 states for using 401:

| If the simple authentication feature is unavailable or the operation
| of simple authentication ultimately fails, then the message exchange
| is regarded as having completed unsuccessfully.

The document does not define nor reference a simple authentication
feature.

Doing a search for this "simple authentication feature", I found an
old draft of the HTTP binding[2], with an editor note saying:

| At present this is more of a hook, we have not (yet) described a
| simple authentication feature or an HTTP specific expression of that
| feature.

Regards,

Hugo
