Seems that there are more oddities comming to light every day.
Removing RFC1522 from HTTP headers may not be a bad idea then.

Anyway, based on the suggestion of several of you, I have moved
the discussion to http-wg (mail to http-wg@cuckoo.hpl.hp.com,
[un]subscription to http-wg-request@cuckoo.hpl.hp.com).

See you there.	Martin.
