I don't care a lot - it won't matter in practice.

That said, the standards process doesn't make this requirement. If we 
ever want to get spec to "full standard", adding *additional* hurdles 
doesn't seem to be the right approach.

(And yes, we should work on getting HTTP-the-base-specs to full standard 
as well)
