Update inets from RFC2616 to RFC7230?

It would be interesting to hear what you think is missing to make us
conform to RFC7230? I think we have taken in support for parts of RFC7230
and that our statement regarding RCF2616 could be updated so say RFC7230
for quite many functions. Would be good to have a list of what is missing
to be RFC7230 conformant and then we can take it from there.
It would also be interesting to have test cases related to RFC7230

So I would say that contributions could be accepted if they don't introduce
incompatibilities for current users.
