#356 closed editorial (fixed)

Spurious "MAYs"

Description

A user agent that wishes to authenticate itself with an origin server -- usually, but not necessarily, after receiving a 401 (Unauthorized) -- MAY do so by including an Authorization header field with the request.

A client that wishes to authenticate itself with a proxy -- usually, but not necessarily, after receiving a 407 (Proxy Authentication Required) -- MAY do so by including a Proxy-Authorization header field with the request.

It doesn't look like use of the 2 MAYs above is appropriate, because they are not implementation alternatives. Maybe change them to "can"?
