[Geopriv] draft-ietf-geopriv-http-location-delivery-00.txt - Title/Name of Protocol

I've changed the title so that we can better track any additional
feedback on this topic.

I've seen Peter's response, as well, agreeing with this idea and I don't
see a problem with changing the name to something that might be deemed
more neutral, yet still descriptive.

Putting creativity aside (i.e., my initial suggestions don't have a cute
acronym), I'd suggest the new title as "Layer 7 Location Retrieval
Protocol (L7LRP)" or "HTTP Enabled Location Retrieval (HELR)".

Any other suggestions?

I think it best to rename this to something other than "HELD". I'm
sure to get flamed from some for this suggestion. However, there are
many that know the old HELD - and want to hang on to those
capabilities (some of which are not in this document). It seems less
confusing to me to get every up on a new name (therefore a mental
reset of what *this* is) vs. having the (probable) endless
discussions about assumptions that what previous IDs called HELD is
not in the current version of HELD, the latter of which is the one
moving forward.
