     741         mechanisms, except in cases where it has direct impact on security. This is because different uses of the protocol require
     742         different error handling strategies; for example, a Web browser may wish to transparently recover from a response where the
     743         Location header field doesn't parse according to the ABNF, whereby in a systems control protocol using HTTP, this type of
     744         error recovery could lead to dangerous consequences.
