Well, the reason I came across it (as you may be able to guess  
yourself) is writing a test suite for HTTP parsing, and checking that  
the parsed version is what is sent. However, a more "common" reason I  
can see is if you are wanting to do something that can only be done  
with an HTTP/1.1 server and not an HTTP/1.0 one (as sending some such  
requests to an HTTP/1.0 server is non-conforming).
