Indeed, I will try to make sure that agenda is sent at least 24 hours 
before the telecon, which means now for tomorrow's telecon :-)

The issue, as far as I understood it, is that a 206 Partial Content HTTP 
response cannot contain custom headers, i.e. must have a Content-Range 
header but cannot have a Range-Equivalent (or whatever) new header. 
Therefore, the equivalence between bytes and a custom unit must be 
represented into the Content-Range header and not through a new header. 
At least, this is how I understand the issue.

Yves, could you point us towards some text or grammar that states this?
