I find myself wondering why we need the extra headers you proposed.
Can't your needs for server to client request acknowledgement be
satisfied already by a system in which the server sends a html response
with an embedded script, which then contacts the server?

I tend to agree with Scott that server to client request
acknowledgement has little to do with the original `reauthentication
requested' problem.
