I definitely want to avoid making prescriptive statements about what to
protect, even couched as suggestions. However, I think that a more generic
statement that describes the characteristics of a header that might need
protection is definitely a good idea.

If Herve doesn't get there first, I can purpose text that concentrates on
the coincidence of secret and small/easy-to-guess..
