    1021    An origin server &MAY; generate a <x:ref>Vary</x:ref> header field
    1022    (<xref target="header.vary"/>) in a response if it wishes to indicate what
    1023    fields of request information were used in its selection algorithm. This
    1024    informs recipients that sending more information might be useful in future
    1025    requests. It also warns caches not to reuse that response, until
    1026    reconfirmed by the origin server, for a request that contains different
    1027    information in those fields.
     1021   A <x:ref>Vary</x:ref> header field (<xref target="header.vary"/>) is
     1022   often sent in a response subject to proactive negotiation to indicate what
     1023   parts of the request information were used in the selection algorithm.
