I'm confused by your "potential transition problem". In HTTP/1.1,
servers can start looking at accept-encoding, and send "gzip" or
"x-gzip" depending on which is acceptable. Servers that want to
send encodings without seeing an Accept-encoding: need to do whatever
they're doing now.

So I don't think this is an HTTP/1.1 issue.
