Re: Encryption simplification

1. Why not add the Crypto-Key to the binary header ? If we have to deal
with binary encoding, we can at
least avoid parsing more text headers - and it doesn't have to be b64.

2. For webpush - if the actual encryption is the same ( and I haven't
compared with the previous version ) - I
don't expect it to be a big problem to accept both formats for a while in
existing servers.
Having all keys in the binary payload has benefits - less parsing/confusion
on the headers, b64 encoding/decoding.

Yes, thanks for noticing.  Fixed.

Again, a typo.  Thanks.
