Hi,

I quickly ran some tests, and the results are (with what I suppose are 
the default settings):

Apache-Coyote/1.1 (Tomcat):

Limit for a single header field: ~8000
Limit for all fields: ~8000
Status Code: 400

Apache/2.2.14:

Limit for a single header field: ~8180
Limit for all fields: > 16000
Status Code: 400

microsoft.com:

Limit for a single header field: ~16000
Limit for all fields: ~16000
Status Code: 400

google.com:

Limit for a single header field: ~15400
Limit for all fields: > 15400
Status Code: 400 (413 for the larger values)


So 413 doesn't seem to be used in general for this case.

Should it? In that case we should clarify the spec...
