This document defines the CDN-Loop request header field for HTTP.
CDN-Loop addresses an operational need that occurs when an HTTP
request is intentionally forwarded between Content Delivery Networks
(CDNs), but is then accidentally or maliciously re-routed back into
the original CDN causing a non-terminating loop.  The new header
field can be used to identify the error and terminate the loop.
