In section 14.3, the definition of Accept-Encoding is given as follows:

Accept-Encoding  = "Accept-Encoding" ":"
1#( codings [ ";" "q" "=" qvalue ] )

This definition implies that there must be at least one non-null codings. However, just below this definition, one of the examples given has an empty Accept-Encoding field-value:

Accept-Encoding: compress, gzip
Accept-Encoding: *
Accept-Encoding: compress;q=0.5, gzip;q=1.0
Accept-Encoding: gzip;q=1.0, identity; q=0.5, *;q=0

Furthermore, the fourth rule for testing whether a content-coding is acceptable mentions the possibility that the field-value may be empty.

The definition for Accept-Encoding should be revised:

Accept-Encoding  = "Accept-Encoding" ":"
                #( codings [ ";" "q" "=" qvalue ] )
