Changing the reference in written cookie files

Hi friends,

A while ago now there was an RFC published[*] that properly documents how
cookies are used in modern HTTP and yet we still keep referring to the ancient
Netscape spec in the header of the cookie files libcurl writes.

What should we do about it?

A) leave it as it is as it doesn't matter

B) change the URL to instead point to the RFC or a more dedicated landing
    page that describe libcurl's cookie support?

C) Remove the header and reference all together from cookie files?

D) something else?

What do you think?
