Re: HTTP over Delay-Tolerant Networks

Perhaps section 3 could be expanded significantly to identify HTTP features
that should be considered for such usage?  E.g 100-Continues , compression
(if done better by the low levels as suggested in this thread), http2 push

Also would be nice if the HTTP/1.1 example in section 4 was a legal request
(no host header).
