#42: STS exception for CRL fetching

 https://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/websec/current/msg01093.html - yoav

 Section 10.3 discusses the case where the server or some subdomain also
 hosts CRLs or OCSP and suggests some work-around to the "all TCP" port
 requirement. Fetching CRLs is a different context than rendering a web
 page. I think the suggestions should be removed and a sentence added that
 says that the STS policy does not apply to fetching of revocation
 information by the browser. I think this would be far easier to implement.
