There is basically no information in the draft what the header can,
should, or should not be used for, it does not even indicate what the
`Digest` scheme uses it for, and it does not point out caveats like
poor interaction with pipelined requests as they are noted in RFC 2617
and whether such considerations apply to HTTP/2, for instance. I guess
that can be addressed, but it would not have hurt to let the `-00` draft
go through a round of feedback before calling for adoption.
