Only because I forgot about those...

Let me try the PR again.  That's in part why I made it a PR rather
than a direct edit :)  I think that the documentation of the problem
is still OK, just the reporting/handling part.  I'll note that 431
isn't an option for a client or intermediary that gets bombed by a
server, but I guess the implication there is that the response is
simply unusable in that case.
