Depends on if you read the request header or their marketing material.

Most cache vendors will say that they implement "all of the important parts
of 1.1" without actually claiming compliance. In reality, they support a few
1.1 features, while formally stating that they're 1.0. To be fair, Caches
probably have the hardest job to implement 1.1.
