Acceptable.

Just requiring:

    GET http://foo.bar.com/home/is/where/the/wallet/is.html HTTP/1.1

uses a few less bytes ("http://foo.bar.com" vs.
"Host://foo.bar.com<crlf>") and removes the distinction between
protocol-to-proxy and protocol-to-server. Slightly more of an upgrade
issue, though, for servers that aren't already configured to make this
equivalence.
