"Refresh" is not a valid HTTP header, and there is currently
no formal proposal to make it one.

While HTTP does ask that recipients ignore headers they don't
understand, it results in poor interoperability.

Should [sic] there be a requirement that HTTP servers SHOULD NOT
send non-standard headers?
