Hi,

In principle I wouldn't mind a document like this.  But if the HTTP
experts have concerns, and based on the contents of the model (*)
perhaps it is better to add the necessary nodes directly to the
higher-level modules (e.g, ietf-restconf-server for the server nodes).

(*) The grouping for the server doesn't really add much, imo.
Basically it has a seemingly arbitrary selection of headers to control
(in fact just 'Server'), which protocol version to support, and a
per-server list of "basic" username/passwords (which is probably not
a common way to configure authentication).

The client grouping also doens't add much, with the possible exception
of the proxy settings; perhaps these nodes could be specified in a
generic grouping.
