Even though ignoring-query-part-of-URL might be current practice in
some HTTP servers, I'm not sure that it belongs in the HTTP/1.0
description of 'current practice' because it isn't a protocol issue.
(Just like HTTP/1.0 protocol doesn't care if the server is implemented
using a file system, a database, CGI, etc.)

It's certainly not *required* that they ignore the query part of URLs.
