Just a few quick observations:

1. HTTP auth nowadays is defined in RFC 9110.

2. auth parameters are token or quoted-string. If you use base64-url
encoding with "=" for padding, the token variant would not work, thus
the abbreviated examples are extremely misleading (might be good to
insert complete message examples...).
