Version -12... updated per the feedback provided...

  http://www.ietf.org/id/draft-snell-http-prefer-12.txt

At this point, unless there are specific updates that need to be made

Peter: can we start the process of moving this along and issuing a
formal last call. Mark Nottingham has agreed to act as the Document
Shepherd.
