Message:

Streamline the meaty sections by moving the miscellaneous conformance
and error handling down where it is applicable, and the ABNF stuff only
used by header fields down to the header fields sections. Simplify
the reference to ABNF in all parts.

Clarify what stateless means for HTTP and correct overstatement
about connection-based authentication. Move discussion of streaming
to where it belongs.

Clarify section on request-target by reordering it by common types
and use an example that has path and query. Provide an example
for CONNECT authority-form. Remove obsolete note about the "no rewrite" rule.
