To be clear, it works as an HTTP header only in IE. So it's an browser-specific
pragma for IE that's not useful to any other UAs. Which is the rationale for
why we have the validator complain about it, if it sees that header. And also
why even if we make the meta@http-equiv value valid, we still might want to
emit a warning for it.
