1.  Introduction

   HTTP/1.0 [3] and HTTP/1.1 [11] define protocol constructs
   (respectively, the HTTP-header and message-header BNF rules) that are
   used as message headers.  These specifications also define a number
   of HTTP headers themselves, and they provide for extension through
   the use of new field-names.

   This document defines the initial contents of an IANA registry that
   catalogs permanent HTTP header field-names, and of an IANA repository
   that catalogs provisional HTTP header field-names.  Both are operated
   according to Registration Procedures for Message Header Fields [1].

   Note that neither tracks the syntax or semantics of field-values.
   Also, while some HTTP headers have different semantics depending on
   their context (e.g., Cache-Control in requests and responses), both
   registries consider the HTTP header field-name name space singular.

   Also, some contact details listed may no longer be correct.

2.  Registration Templates

   Header field entries are summarized in tabular form for convenience
   of reference and presented in full in the following sections.

3.  IANA Considerations

   This specification provides initial registrations of HTTP header
   fields in the "Permanent Message Header Field Registry", defined by
   Registration Procedures for Message Header Fields [1].

   It also provides initial submissions of HTTP header fields in the
   "Provisional Message Header Field Repository", defined by the same
   document.

4.  Security Considerations

   No security considerations are introduced by this document beyond
   those already inherent in use of the HTTP header fields referenced.

5.  Acknowledgements

   The authors would like to thank Graham Klyne for his work in defining
   the message header registries, his input and help in preparing this
   document, and the registry generation software.
