Description (last modified by mnot@…)

6.1 Connection cautions against using existing header field names as connection tokens, and we register 'close' in p1, but there isn't a requirement (or encouragement) to register connection tokens in the header field registry. Should there be?

No, that would just confuse people even more. The paragraph is about options that are not header fields, like close; registering them as header fields would make them header fields.
