Note special status of Content-* prefix in header field registration procedures

Description

As per #103, header fields whose name starts with 'content-' have special meaning, placing additional requirements upon implementations. This needs to be noted in the registration procedures, for the information of IANA, the IESG and any expert reviewer.

Note that the resolution of #104 may obviate this.

From [1158]:

Replaced the general prohibition on unrecognized Content-* header fields with a specific prohibition of Content-Range (the only field for which it is an actual problem) and a general requirement regarding checking for consistency. Unfortunately, this required rewriting the entire section on PUT to get rid of the misconceptions about storing resources and reflect how PUT is actually implemented in practice.

Addresses #79, #102, #103, #104, #112, #180, #231, and #267
