Summary: Well-written and easy to read document.

Major issues: None

Minor issues:
* s4.5 seems to prohibit defining new non-generic HTTP methods. How do we
reconcile that with the work happening in MASQUE? I know that CONNECT is its
own special-case, but should we have a carveout here? (Though MASQUE might end
up using extended CONNECT which side steps the issue). Or is it the case that
MASQUE is modifying HTTP itself instead of building an application over HTTP?

Nits/editorial comments:
* s3.2 uses the term "link" without explaining what it is. Perhaps a reference
to RFC 8288 if that's what is meant here? * s4.11 mentions HTTP/3 without
referencing its specification
