#1639: One last tweak to proxy-status

To: HTTP Working Group <ietf-http-wg@w3.org>

In going over the draft during IESG processing, I noticed that there was some editorial misalignment between how we talk about parameters; this issue has a PR that attempts to correct that.

I'm bringing it up to the WG because there is one non-editorial change involved: the text for `next-protocol` says 'This [parameter] is only applicable when that connection was actually established.'

Upon reflection, that doesn't make sense -- both because it isn't aligned with how the other parameters work, and because there are situations where it's useful to record what the next protocol that was used to fetch a stored response was.

See <https://github.com/httpwg/http-extensions/pull/1640> for the suggested changes.

I don't think this will be controversial, but wanted to bring it up to make sure it got proper review. If you see any issues, please bring them up (here or there).
