Section 7.1. Syntax says:

origin              = "Origin:" OWS origin-list-or-null OWS
origin-list-or-null = %x6E %x75 %x6C %x6C / origin-list
origin-list         = serialized-origin *( SP serialized-origin )

It should say:

origin              = "Origin:" OWS origin-or-null OWS
origin-or-null      = %x6E %x75 %x6C %x6C / serialized-origin


Rationale: List of origins was added for CORS http://www.w3.org/TR/cors/ but CORS does not require it and we should leave this as a choice.

This syntax restriction also has limited impact on 7.2. and 7.3.

This should be considered if/when the document is worked on again, but it is not an "error" in the original document -- rather, it's something that's come up since -- and so it's not appropriate for errata.
