[transition] FPWD Request for Trace Context Level 2

FPWD Request for Trace Context Level 2
from https://github.com/w3c/transitions/issues/458

# Document title, URLs, estimated publication date


# Abstract

This specification defines standard HTTP headers and a value format to propagate context information that enables distributed tracing scenarios. The specification standardizes how context information is sent and modified between services. Context information uniquely identifies individual requests in a distributed system and also defines a means to add and propagate provider-specific context information.
