Re: Compression dictionary draft ID - draft-meenan-httpbis-compression-dictionary-00

Thanks.  I cleaned up the formatting so it should be much easier to read
now. I also:

- Added the "Vary" header on compressed responses which I had missed on my
original submission.
- Simplified the wildcard matching algorithm to make it a single-pass
substring match against the request URL instead of truncating the URL after
each match.
- Cleaned up the IANA considerations section (switched to tables) and added
the headers.

I'll take a pass at better specifying the CORS-readable security
mitigations over the next few days but I wanted to get the cleaned-up draft
out while I work on beefing that part up. I expect I'll need to be a lot
more thorough about documenting the references to SF field types and other
spec-language considerations but I'll get the core logic nailed down first.
