A revision of RFC2616 should mention BCP 90 (Registration Procedures for Message Header Fields) and should take over as the authoritative reference for the headers it contains.

When we do this, we should consider adding extra information to the template (Graham has done this for a lot of the Mail registrations IIRC).

E.g., header classification, whether it's a single value or a list, etc.

I'm happy to help with this if you like.

Are you suggesting to augment the registration template? That would require updating BCP90, right?
