> Abstract:
>   The 'Key' header field for HTTP responses allows an origin server to
>   describe the secondary cache key ([RFC7234], section 4.1) for a
>   resource, by conveying what is effectively a short algorithm that can
>   be used upon later requests to determine if a stored response is
>   reusable for a given request.
>   Key has the advantage of avoiding an additional round trip for
>   validation whenever a new request differs slightly, but not
>   significantly, from prior requests.
>   Key also informs user agents of the request characteristics that
>   might result in different content, which can be useful if the user
>   agent is not sending request header fields in order to reduce the
>   risk of fingerprinting.
> Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission
> until the htmlized version and diff are available at tools.ietf.org.
