Well, the RFCs already specify the solution. HTTPbis can potentially *clarify*
it, but that's it.

The problem is that some browser vendors aren't listening.

Yes, in theory everything should be orthogonal, but in practice it isn't.

The really simple question is: what is needed to make Apple and Microsoft
implement what's already specified? If the HTML WG (or the W3C in general)
could help, that would be great.
