Adam, are you planning on updating that RFC? Issues as I see it:

* HTTP Origin header ABNF is faulty
* Origin for URLs references obsoleted specifications

(If the RFC is not being updated my alternative plan is that
http://fetch.spec.whatwg.org/ continues to define the HTTP Origin
header. http://url.spec.whatwg.org/ could take over the definition for
getting an origin out of a URL and serializing an origin. And finally
HTML would define the origin concept once again.)
