This looks attractive, but I'm a bit concerned about how much time it would take to agree upon the classifications for each protocol element we have registered. We'd also have to update RFC3684 if we want to include the field for http headers.

Also, it may be difficult to classify some headers, because they're used by a specific application of HTTP. E.g., PUT and DELETE aren't used at all by browsers, but they're commonly used by WebDAV and Subversion. how should we classify them?
