#52: Clarification of section 2.3.1

 I'd suggest the following change to 2.3.1, clarifying it's
 required-ness and a max-age of 0.

 2.3.1.  max-age

    max-age specifies the number of seconds, after the reception of the
    Public-Key-Pins HTTP Response Header, during which the UA regards the
    host as a Pinned Host.  The delta-seconds production is specified in

    max-age is a required attribute. If omitted, the UA MUST NOT note the
    host as a Pinned Host, and MUST discard any previously set Pinning
    Metadata for that host in its non-volatile store.

    If max-age is set to 0, the UA MUST likewise discard any previsouly
    set Pinning Metadata.
