During the last f2f, we noodled around the idea of adding some 
meta-information to do bytes to units conversion.
I encourage you to read section 10.2.7 of RFC2616.

Basically, if we retrieved first part of the media entity (to get 
informations needed to decode the data), we should use an If-Range to
ensure we are handling the same content, and it forbid the use of another 
header. Also adding an entity header in a non-If-Range tells a bad story 
for caches.

So the best course of action if we decide to add equivalence directly in 
the reply would be be to add it in the Content-Range definition for those 
units.
