    I'm not sure where 'the current vary:' proposal is at this point. I
    guess it's in the mail archive. My guess is that it doesn't, but it
    should.
    
Oops, I thought I put a link to that in the meeting report, but I guess
I didn't.

http://weeble.lut.ac.uk/lists/http-caching/0235.html (in the mail
archive) points to
	
	http://www.ast.cam.ac.uk/%7Edrtr/vary-header-02.ps - PostScript
	http://www.ast.cam.ac.uk/%7Edrtr/vary-header-02.txt - Plain text
	http://www.ast.cam.ac.uk/%7Edrtr/vary-header-02.html - HTML

Daniel DuBois and David Robinson perhaps should revise this to
allow the Vary: header to express the concept "this response does
NOT vary with the XXXX: header".
