Reading.. amd not entirely agreeing that the current specs is as bad as
the paper tries to say, but it does correctly point out many problematic

I also don't fully agree that the instance definition is needed for
Content-Encoding. Just need to push down everyones throat that selection
of Content-Encoding is a entity variant selection, just as

But Content-Range and Content-MD5 is tricky...  Is it really the

complete entity before range selection.
