    57865786<t>
    5787   Introduce Method Registry.
    5788   (<xref target="method.registry"/>)
     5787  Remove base URI setting semantics for "<x:ref>Content-Location</x:ref>" due to
     5788  poor implementation support, which was caused by too many broken servers emitting
     5789  bogus Content-Location header fields, and also the potentially undesirable effect
     5790  of potentially breaking relative links in content-negotiated resources.

    58035806<t>
    5804   Take over the Status Code Registry, previously defined in
    5805   <xref target="RFC2817" x:fmt="of" x:sec="7.1"/>.
    5806   (<xref target="status.code.registry"/>)
     5807  Restrict "<x:ref>Max-Forwards</x:ref>" header field to OPTIONS and TRACE
     5808  (previously, extension methods could have used it as well).
     5809  (<xref target="header.max-forwards"/>)
     5810</t>
     5811<t>
     5812  The ABNF for the "<x:ref>Expect</x:ref>" header field has been both fixed
     5813  (allowing parameters for value-less expectations as well) and simplified
     5814  (allowing trailing semicolons after "100-continue" when they were invalid
     5815  before).
     5816  (<xref target="header.expect"/>)
     5817</t>
     5818<t>
     5819  Remove ISO-8859-1 special-casing in <x:ref>Accept-Charset</x:ref>.
     5820  (<xref target="header.accept-charset"/>)
     5821</t>
     5822<t>
     5823  Allow "<x:ref>Referer</x:ref>" field value of "about:blank" as alternative to
     5824  not specifying it.
     5825  (<xref target="header.referer"/>)

    58405859</t>
    58415860<t>
    5842   Change ABNF productions for header fields to only define the field value.
     5861  Correct syntax of "<x:ref>Location</x:ref>" header field to allow URI
     5862  references (including relative references and fragments), as referred symbol
     5863  "absoluteURI" wasn't what was expected, and add some clarifications as to
     5864  when use of fragments would not be appropriate.

    5889 </t>
    5890 <t>
    58915886  Remove the default character encoding of "ISO-8859-1" for text media types; the

     5894<t>
     5895  Remove definition of "Content-MD5 header" field because it was inconsistently
    59005896  implemented with respect to partial responses, and also because of known
    59015897  deficiencies in the hash algorithm itself (see <xref target="RFC6151"/> for details).
