> Abstract:
>   The HTTP Content-Length header field is overloaded with (at least)
>   two duties: message delimitation in HTTP/1, and metadata about the
>   length of an incoming request body to the software handling it.
> 
>   This causes confusion, and sometimes problems.  This document
>   proposes a new header to untangle these semantics (at least
>   partially).
> 
> 
> 
> 
> Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission
> until the htmlized version and diff are available at tools.ietf.org.
