Description

Section 6.3.4 rule 4 says:

  1. Retargeting based upon a Response: In the case of retargeting due to a specific response (e.g., 302), the index would be calculated per rule 3. That is, the lowest/last digit of the index is incremented (i.e., a new branch is created), with the increment of 1. For example, if the index in the History-Info header of the received request was 1.2, then the index in the History-Info header field for the new hi-targeted- to-URI would be 1.3.

That last sentence is incorrect. If the *received* request was 1.2, and it was sent to Bob, it's now 1.2.1, and if Bob responds with a 302, the new request is now 1.2.2. If the *sent* request (which got redirected) was 1.2, then 1.3 would be right.

Change the sentence to say "... of the sent request was 1.2, and it was responded to with a 302, then the index in the History-Info header field for the new hi-targeted-to-URI would be 1.3.".
