It can't be normative -- 2145 is an Informational RFC. IIRC, the text was supposed to be included in the 2616 revision.

We should check that the text on versions is included (editorial).

From [1148]:

Move section on transport independence up so that it can describe what connections are before they are used in other explanations.

Try to explain both the philosophy and practice of HTTP versioning so that future protocol designers will understand what the numbers mean and why they are necessary. Incorporated all of the relevant versioning requirements from RFC2145 and added that RFC to the obsoleted list.

Addresses #75
