Thanks to the editors and contributors of this document for a great job.
Specially for the security consideration section, it is very well written and
anyone implementing this document should pay extra attentions to that section.

I have following comment and question -

*  I consider this as editorial fix hence not holding a discuss but I would
like to see this addressed. This document uses terminologies defined in section
3 of
for example - user agent, client. However, it does not refer to the the
semantics doc. I think it must refer to the section 3 of semantic document.

* Section 2.2 :  it says -

          "When a server listening only for HTTP request messages, or processing
   what appears from the start-line to be an HTTP request message,
   receives a sequence of octets that does not match the HTTP-message
   grammar aside from the robustness exceptions listed above, the server
   SHOULD respond with a 400 (Bad Request) response and close the
         Is there a reason why it is not a MUST but SHOULD? In my small scale
         implementation experiments I implemented it as a MUST. I believe if a
         400 is send followed by a close connection then it is a "save
         yourself" action for the server and a MUST thing to do.

* from the ID nits : there is an unused reference to RFC7231.
