Seems good idea, but is there really need for ECMA version?

If no, then maybe:

  The "ECMA" request header field indicates the client's 
  ECMA script execution is turned on or off.

    ECMA = "on" / "off" 

  If "ECMA" request header field includes invalid or
  unknown value, this is interpretes as ECMA script execution 
  is turned on.
