I think there's broad agreement on both of these points.

I'm wondering if it makes sense to aim it primarily at HTTP implementers rather than administrators, with the notion that it would inform:

- Their implementation decisions
- The configuration choices they offer to administrators / users
- Their documentation (e.g., advice to their administrators when the implementation can't change the appropriate parts of the OS)

Would that help? 

If so, it might make sense to organise it into sections for clients and servers (and intermediaries, if there's anything that isn't covered by the combination of the first two). Although IIRC Daniel was already talking about doing that.
