Digest: use in requests

Dear all / chairs,

I think this is the last relevant issue to face in Digest, and
we really need your support. To reduce noise, I tried to tackle it
directly with @Julian Reschke - which I have to thank for all the support.

This discussion has been lingering around since IETF-106 so it would be great
to tackle it.

The point is related to whether Digest on requests containing
partial representations should be computed on the payload-data
or on the representation data. The actual Digest formulation derives
from RFC3230 and always uses representation-data.

 The gh-issue is:
-  https://github.com/httpwg/http-extensions/issues/970

Besides this point - I would be even fine to close it with no-action
to avoid introducing inconsistencies with RFC3230 - and a minor
algorithm issue, this spec is imho ready for a WGLC.

Thanks for your support and have a nice day,
