Held for Document Update by: Dan Romascanu

Throughout the document, when it says:

a)       header

b)       headers

c)       Header

It should say:

a)       header field

b)       header fields

c)       Header Field


As a Standards Track document, RFC 5090 should use established
IETF standard terminology, and not fall back to common sluggish
and confusing terminology. Concise Ref.: RFC 4249, Section 3.1.1.

There are 24 instances of case a) throughout the RFC;
only Section 3.20 makes proper use of the IETF standard
terminology; case b) occurs twice in the RFC;
case c) applies to the title of Section 2.1.3.
