This is an HTTP request header which allows the media fragment to be transmitted verbatim to the server.

   Fragment:

When a Fragment request is handled by a compliant HTTP server, it is acknowledged by the response header:

   Content-Fragment:

the value of which is a serialization/canonicalization of the actual fragment provided by the server.

This must also be accompanied by a Vary: response header for Fragment:

   Vary: Fragment
