HTTP/1.0 request - should the server close the connection after response?

When an HTTP/1.1 server accepts an HTTP/1.0 request, should the server
always close the connection after sending the response? That seems to
be the safest way. While the server could try to keep the connection
by checking for Connection: keep-alive, the spec suggests that it is
problematic. What's your recommended best practice for this issue?
