At one time (perhaps 4 years ago?) Jim Gettys offered to spin
a version of the HTTP spec with the Errata included. I
don't know how big a job it would be.

If the server is doing rewrites of the data, the server
could return a 'weak' ETag. It's up to the server to
decide what is equivalent.

But it would be unreasonable to return a strong ETag
for a body that had never before 'crossed the wire',
and certainly an incompatible change.
