Discussed during 12/14/05 teleconference. 

We're not sure it's really even a problem. Servers that do have a policy on this
allow the max length of all headers to be configured (64kbytes is typical for
all headers combined). Hence, even if the IF header is split across multiple
headers, this still doesn't address the maximum size of all headers combined.

This doesn't appear to be an issue that we can fix in the specification.

Closing the issue.
