+1 - that's one thing that keeps coming up and that we have parked due 
to HTTP/2 being the priority.

There are also other things to think about for future HTTP work, such 
as, in no particular order:

- how to handle RFC723? errata

- addressing the C-E/Range Request issue

- enhanced discover of C-E support

- common header field syntax (JSON?)

...essentially all HTTP related topic that have come up in the past but 
was but aside due to other priorities.
