Type: Editorial

Section 3, pg.3 says:

   Note that this directive does not affect freshness; stale cached
   responses that are used SHOULD still be visibly stale when sent
|  (i.e., have a non-zero Age header and a warning header, as per HTTP's
|  requirements).

It should say:

   Note that this directive does not affect freshness; stale cached
   responses that are used SHOULD still be visibly stale when sent
|  (i.e., have a non-zero Age header field and a Warning header field,
   as per HTTP's requirements).
                                    ^^^^^^       ^             ^^^^^^

Notes:

Rationale:
- inconsistent use of standard terminology, and
- inconsistent capitalization of header field names.

(These issues recur in the last paragraph of Section 4.)
