Please consider the comments below as nits.

In Section 1:

   "Therefore this document deprecates the "X-" convention for most
    application protocols and makes specific recommendations about
    how to proceed in a world without the distinction between
    standard and non-standard parameters."

In Section 2, there is a "MUST NOT" for implementers of application 
protocols.  The "most" (see quoted text) is not taken into 
consideration.  The authors could get away with a "SHOULD" instead of a "MUST".
