Well I meant 'Truth *in* labeling' ..

A data point ...

I have just observed that the CERN 3.0 proxy forwards the response
status from the server to the client.

   client sent HTTP/1.0
   client gets back HTTP/1.1 in what would clearly seem to be a non-1.1
            proxy context.


I used the 'apache.org' site as my ultimate destination.

As proxies go, I think there are quite a few of this beast still around.

I don't have a specific scenario to suggest at the moment where I think
this would break anything any worse than it currently is or is not but
I thought the observation was worth noting. Makes me wonder what would
happen if the client sent a HTTP/1.1 request, etc.
