Trying to think if there are cases where a proxy is a server 
and a client at the same time: Opera Mini, Amazon Silk, etc.
and this creates a header potential conflict when emitting a 
request or a response.

Thinking out loud.

I would rather make everything lowercase (or let's say 
insensitive to the case). Case requirements are one of the 
first mistakes that people do in coding. It is likely to 
break. It makes also harder to remember which one is which
when programming.


except-dnt-1 = e1 [ explanation ]
except-dnt-3 = e3 [ explanation ]
opt-dnt-1 = o1 [ explanation ]
opt-dnt-3 = o3 [ explanation ]
