A while back, I did some testing of HTTP intermediary conformance  
using the Measurement Factory's excellent Co-Advisor tool <http:// 
coad.measurement-factory.com/>, with one purpose being to figure out  
what the least common denominator for HTTP conformance on the open  
Internet is.

I've made a writeup available at <http://www.mnot.net/blog/2007/06/20/ 
proxy_caching>. For a variety of legal reasons, I can't publish the  
full results, so this is of very limited value. However, it might be  
useful to mine for issues -- especially if we're going to talk about  
deprecating features.
