<xref target="RFC2324"/> was an April 1 RFC that lampooned the various
ways HTTP was abused; one such abuse was the definition of an
application-specific 418 status code. In the intervening years, this
status code has been widely implemented as an "Easter Egg", and therefore
is effectively consumed by this use.
Therefore, the 418 status code is reserved in the IANA HTTP Status Code
registry. This indicates that the status code cannot be assigned to other
applications currently. If future circumstances require its use (e.g.,
exhaustion of 4NN status codes), it can be re-assigned to another use.
