So it seems that due this type of bug reports, Chrome loosened the check 
to allow multiple instances when the values are identical (which is 
explicitly allowed in HTTPbis per the resolution of #95).

Furthermore, Firefox 7 is now doing similar checks, but adds more header 
fields (Location, Content-Disposition), and also has started to be picky 
about certain field values (such as C-L with a broken integer).

This is good. I'd like to thank the implementers that they were willing 
to "break" a few pages and deal with the bug reports, in order to make 
this improvement!

Best regards, Julian
