Henrik,

The main problem area is in the behavior of proxy servers.

Consider the cases of:

Client  Proxy 	Proxy 	Server
1.1	1.1	1.1	1.1
1.1	1.0	1.1	1.1
1.1	1.1	1.0	1.1
1.0	1.0	1.1	1.1
1.0	1.1	1.0	1.1

Consider the methods:

PUT
POST
TRACE
OPTIONS
HEAD
GET

What happens when a 1.1 client tries to do a 1.1 put via a 1.0
proxy to a 1.1 server?
