Well, it's widely implemented, just not registered. Prefixing with "X-" 
wouldn't help; "X-" isn't special for message headers.

As far as I can tell, the right thing to do is to write a short Internet 
Draft specifying the syntax and the semantics and registering it. Bonus 
points for discussing alternate approaches (Retry-After, Redirects), and 
the connection to HTML...

Best regards, Julian

PS: I'm glad to help with the formatting if an IETF "newbie" wants to 
give this a try...
