Section 8.2 "HTTP/1.1 Expect Header" : Update guidance for handing a 5xx response code

Smith Kennedy Jun 8, 2018

In Section 8.2 "HTTP/1.1 Expect Header" the guidance for handling a 5xx response status code is currently handled by #8 on page 72:

   "8. Any other HTTP status code : Treat as a fatal error and report it as per §4.10."

More appropriate guidance to handle a 5xx or any response code that isn't already mentioned would be like so:

   "8. Any other HTTP response status code : If an Expect header was in the request, resend the request without the Expect header; if an Expect header was not in the request, treat it as a fatal error and report it as per §4.10."
