However, note the existence of things like the "x-gzip" and "gzip"
content codings in HTTP, which RFC 2068 says are equivalent. An
implementation that programmatically discriminated between "standard"
and "non-standard" parameters based solely on the parameter names might
automatically reject entities for which a content-coding of "x-gzip" is
specified, but automatically accept entities for which a content-coding
of "gzip" is specified. IMHO that's just wrong, and MUST NOT is
So should this document note that it "Updates 2068"?
I don't think so, because "x-gzip" and "gzip" were in fact equivalent
(as far as I can see), so treating them as equivalent seems just fine.
