Thanks. I found the same info from RFC 2616 now that you mentioned it:

"The metainformation contained in the HTTP headers in response to a
HEAD request SHOULD be identical to the information sent in response
to a GET request."
http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec9.html

Is there a FAQ about Link Checker? I only found the "Archive approval
system FAQ":
