text to add in section 6
6.1 Use of the HTTP Protocol
- The YADIS protocol relies on the standard HTTP protocol. Requests or responses that are nonconforming to the RFC2616 are considered broken.
- The use of HTTP in this document implies using HTTPS when the protocol identifier is /https/.
- Agents should follow HTTP redirect responses. Agents may terminate a chain of redirect responses after a reasonable depth.
