Registering Content-MD5

Message-Id: <C94E5914-F5F0-46D0-BABB-D42EE45DF10D@mnot.net>
To: HTTP Working Group <ietf-http-wg@w3.org>
In <https://github.com/httpwg/http-core/issues/93>, we noticed that while RFC7231 talks about deprecating the Content-MD5 header, the change didn't make its way into the registry, causing some amount of confusion.

Is there any objection in the working group to asking IANA* to update the Permanent Message Header registry with:

Header name: Content-MD5
Protocol: http
Status: obsoleted
Reference: RFC7231, Appendix B



* Technically, we'll send it to the headers list first, as per <https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3864#section-4.3>.
