And it probably should, followed by warning you if the value given in the HTTP
header field is different than actual size. Similarly nice features to have
(at user option) would be to check the checksum for the page, as well as a
typical «load time» report (“X” bytes, downloads in “Y” seconds on a “Z”
connection). Possibly, a full «cacheability» check might make sense as well.

I think some of these are already on the «Blue Sky» list for implementation at
some future point, after more core issues are dealt with.
