Hi,

Please find below the registration template for 5 HTTP header fields the 
W3C Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group would like to provisionally 
register for use in the "Guidelines for Web Content Transformation 
Proxies" specification it is currently working on.

Note on the presence of the "X-" prefix: names were chosen on the basis 
that there are a already existing and deployed convention. Since there 
is no easy way to transition out of a situation where an "X-" prefix has 
been used for other purpose than a purely experimental one, the W3C 
Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group acknowledges that these HTTP 
header field names are already in use and requests that the "X-" prefix 
be (exceptionally) kept.


-----
Header field names:
X-Device-User-Agent (request header)
X-Device-Accept (request header)
X-Device-Accept-Charset (request header)
X-Device-Accept-Encoding (request header)
X-Device-Accept-Language (request header)

Applicable protocol:
http

Status:
provisional

Author/Change controller:

Specification document(s):
http://www.w3.org/2005/MWI/BPWG/Group/TaskForces/CT/editors-drafts/Guidelines/latest 

(Editor's Draft)
http://www.w3.org/TR/ct-guidelines/ (Working Draft)

See section "4.1.5.5 Original Header Fields" in the documents.

I will submit the above template to the designated IANA e-mail address 
beginning of August, unless some explicit disagreement is made on this list.

Regards,

On behalf of the W3C Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group,
Francois Daoust,
W3C Staff Contact for the group.
