Description

In general, quoted string literals in the spec are defined to be case insensitive, but the HTTP Version token should be case sensitive. In section 3.1 it says:

    The version of an HTTP message is indicated by an HTTP-Version field
    in the first line of the message.

    HTTP-Version   = "HTTP" "/" 1*DIGIT "." 1*DIGIT

It should add:

    The version of an HTTP message is indicated by an HTTP-Version field
    in the first line of the message. HTTP-Version is case-sensitive.

    HTTP-Version   = "HTTP" "/" 1*DIGIT "." 1*DIGIT
