I think Dave Morris's compromise, to define Orig-URI in a way that %%
in the value string means "the URL in the request", nicely shortens the
header's length.  I vote for that.

I think Orig-URI should be required in HTTP/1.1, optional in HTTP/1.0.
That way a server would know that an HTTP/1.0 request that lacks
Orig-URI is potentially ambiguous w.r.t. request domain name.  An
HTTP/1.1 request would always carry enough information to differentiate
request domain names.
