p2 5.1.1 requires that an unrecognised expectation be replied to with a 417 Expectation Failed. 

In my testing, it's fairly common for servers to ignore an unregistered expectation (e.g., "foo"). 

Given how many problems we already have with Expect, should we consider disallowing further extensions here, and removing this requirement?
