... and can messages with HTTP/1.0 version strings and TE: chunked.
Recall that the context here is not HTTP/1.1 features, but HTTP/1.1
version string in the message. That alone does not seem to buy you
much. Cache-control support is a similar example; you do not need an
HTTP/1.1 message to support Cache-controls.
