Subject: Re: New example for appendix


The examples are generated using a software program available to me, which
automatically produces the headers you refer to. These can certainly be removed
from the example, however it's important to point out the HTTP 1.1 spec states
the following in section 14.43, regarding the User-Agent header:

"User agents SHOULD include this field with  requests."

That is the reason you see it present in the example.

With regard to the Connection header, the HTTP 1.1 spec indicates this header is
used to inform a receiver to close a connection, this header may be needed by
the reliable messaging folks in their HTTP bindings.

The examples are provided to assist people in understanding the packaging and
header portions of the MS specification and are not intended to be "formal
specifications".   The TR&P team is planning to  provide formal, standard HTTP
bindings and the examples will be updated to reflect the formal standard at that
time. Anything related to HTTP bindings in the current spec, especially the
items you mentioned, should be considered  "non-normative".
