Thank you for the updates in the -07; they look good.

Two remarks on the new content in the -07:

In Section 2.1.1 the prose accompanying the example that uses
a 429 response code mentions "the reverse proxy", but the
Proxy-Status list members in the example have been changed to
no longer mention "SomeReverseProxy" in favor of an example hostname
specific to a given deployment.

The template for the proxy error types registry (Section 2.4), as
well as the initial registry contents in Sections 2.3.x, use the
phrase "Only generated by intermediaries".  My apologies if I made
this comment already and it was discarded, but that phrasing is
easy to misread as saying that the *error* was only generated by
intermediaries, when the intent is that the (possibly partial)
response content was only generated by intermediaries.  So I'd consider
adding "response", for "Response only generated by intermediaries"
(or similar) to forestall such confusion.
