I agree with Harald that such a comment in the HTTP/1.0 spec is a good idea
and will alert people to a potential problem. I hope that the better Web
servers implement it. I don't see it as conflicting with current practice.

I think Larry's suggestion is excellent and should definitely be considered
for HTTP/1.1. It is not hard for us to specify, not hard for HTTP server
writers to implement, and not hard for Web client writers to implement or
simply ignore.
