5.1
1. Replace "interaction models" with "semantics"

2. Replace "client's requested interaction model (s). If any requested
interaction model cannot be honored," with
"client's requested LDP semantics.  If any requested LDP semantics cannot
be honored,"

3. Replace "If the request header specifies a LDPR interaction model
<https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/ldpwg/raw-file/default/ldp.html#ldpr-gen-linktypehdr>,
"
with
"If the client request LDPR semantics (by setting request header Link: <
http://www.w3.org/ns/ldp#Resource>; rel="type"),  ".
Append  "See 4.2.1.4 for additional details on the Link: rel='type' header"

4. similar to #3 above for bullet on LDPC

5. replace last occurrence of "interaction model" with "semantic"

Let us know if this helps with the clarity on this and then I can fold in
the changes.
