You're deprecating a feature people actually use, so the result is
much worse than the current reality. I understand why the header is
difficult for Henrik, because Squid is designed to be placed between
parties it knows nothing about. Caches that have more out-of-band
information, such as AOL's or Django's, have an easier time with it.
