The ABNF for Reason-Phrase currently appears both in P1 and P2.

The same applies to Status-Code.

Both need to be defined in Part 1 so that generic message parsing is specified.

Should we remove the grammar from Part 2? Note that the definitions for Reason-Phrase are identical, while Status-Code differs in that Part 2 enumerates the codes defined in the spec. It seems to me that we should get rid of that enumeration and just say "3DIGIT" in the grammar.

From [1124]:

Restructure 'Status Code and Reason Phrase', replace ABNF listing all HTTP/1.1 status codes with an Overview table, remove some redundant text (see #137)

From [1137]:

apply editorial improvements suggested by Ben Niven-Jenkins in <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/ietf-http-wg/2011JanMar/0164.html>, also avoid the word "required" when it's not a keyword (see #137)
