Add fetching rules for HTTP/HTTPS and for redirects. These rules apply

text to add in section 6
6.1 Use of the HTTP Protocol
* The YADIS protocol relies on the standard HTTP protocol. Requests or
responses that are nonconforming to the RFC2616 are considered broken.
* The use of HTTP in this document implies using HTTPS when the
protocol identifier is /https/.
* Agents should follow HTTP redirect responses. Agents may terminate a
chain of redirect responses after a reasonable depth.
