I'm sure you read https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=109553#c37  
as well which suggests otherwise. Also, whether it's servers or clients  
that are broken doesn't really matter. The simple fact is that the header  
can't be supported.

 From my recollection we can't really implement it in any way.
