#288: Considering messages in isolation

From: Mark Nottingham <mnot@mnot.net>
Date: Wed, 22 Jun 2011 11:43:08 +1000
Message-Id: <2BFFD30C-CE31-489D-9314-063C85C4D964@mnot.net>
To: httpbis Group <ietf-http-wg@w3.org>
Proposal for <http://trac.tools.ietf.org/wg/httpbis/trac/ticket/288>:

Add to new message orientation section (see #283) or just to 2.2 Client/Server? messaging:

Recipients MUST consider every message in a connection in isolation; because HTTP is a stateless protocol, it cannot be assumed that two requests on the same connection are from the same client or share any other common attributes.
